Applications:

CMC is a high-purity, high-efficiency slurrying agent. It is resistant to salt, base and moisture, compatible with sea water and saturated brine. It is a strong thickener, suitable for in-situ preparation with dry powder. It is used in mining flotation to separate the metals and impurities. It can help to reduce the pollution to the environment.

CMC is widely used in frozen desserts, protein food, beverages, icings, dressings, instant noodles, etc.

CMC is widely used in food industry, it play the roles of taste improvement, thickening and stabilization when used in various kinds of dairy drinks and seasonings. As an additive of molding, taste improvement, anti-fragmentation, water retaining and tenacity strengthening, CMC is also used in ice cream, bread, cake, biscuit, instant noodle and fast paste foods.
