What are Hydrocolloids ?Hydrocolloids: By virtue of hydrocolloids surface area to their volume relation provide a very unique behavior in aqueous solutions. They are typically manager of water, Modifier, viscosifier, texture management.
CMC is one of Hydrocolloids typically selected for its smooth texture and clarity in comparison to other hydrocolloids.
CMC is unique because of its pseudo plastic rhelogical behavior then other hydrocolloids.
CMC is one of the most versatile of all water-soluble hydrocolloids and has a number of important properties making it useful in many industrial applications. CMC is a multifunctional hydrocolloid and has the ability to impart several important characteristics to a formulation through its mode of action.
The versatility and the multifunctional properties of CMC are well recognized and are further illustrated by its large number of applications in a variety of products.
