Is Carboxymethyl Cellulose harmful to humans?
Carboxymethyl Cellulose(CMC for short) is a water-soluble food additive that is widely used.
Many users have a question about whether it’s harmful to the human body. Let us briefly introduce the reference below.
CMC is chemically inert and physiologically inert and does not participate in physiological metabolism. The main raw materials for CMC production are refined cotton, chloroacetic acid and NaOH. Although chloroacetic acid is highly toxic, the alkali in the reaction is excessive and there will be no residue. High-concentration alcohol in the production process as a solvent and high-temperature treatment will not cause microbial contamination, so CMC is harmless to the human body.
CMC is widely used in the food, toothpaste, paper, oil, printing, washing and coating industries.
