Why is the ingredient in yogurt called CMC instead of additive?

Oct. 24, 2019

  As a China Cellulose Manufacturer, there is some information I would like to share with you. I believe that many friends will subconsciously go to see the ingredients list when they drink yogurt. This is actually a very good thing, which shows that everyone's safety awareness has improved, knowing to pay attention to the ingredient list of the product! I believe that everyone will notice a problem in the process of looking at the ingredients of yogurt. That is, there is an additive called Carboxymethylcellulose Sodium in the ingredients in the yogurt. This is a very widely used additive, which is widely used in various industries. Inevitably, some friends will be curious to ask a question, that is, this is obviously an additive rather than the main component, but why should it be listed separately?

Why is the ingredient in yogurt called CMC instead of additive

CMC Powder

  This actually involves the food safety law, because the state requires manufacturers to label all the product ingredients in the process of producing food and beverages. It is important to know that the additives in yogurt are not just CMC. If you only write additives, we How do you know about other ingredients? If you encounter a conscience enterprise, if you encounter some black-hearted enterprises, add some illegal and harmful ingredients in the body. Who is responsible for this risk?

  So, let alone yogurt, but in the food industry, the ingredients of the material must be clearly defined in all the ingredients, and must not be simulated.

  So what is the maximum amount of CMC Powder added to the beverage? As a widely used additive in the milk beverage industry, CMC has a significant improvement in stability and mouthfeel, but this does not mean that we can add more to the beverage as much as possible. In order to ensure food safety, the state is responsible for CMC. Adding has strict requirements, that is, 1.2 grams per kilogram.

  For this data, as a manufacturer, you must know, because if you are not clear, add more, sooner or later will be checked by the relevant departments, and wait until your results, I do not want to say more.

  For the consumer, in fact, there is also a need to know, of course, the general manufacturers will not indicate the content, so even if you know, unless handed over to the professional testing department, do not know whether the manufacturer is over the standard! Of course, in general, you can rest assured that most manufacturers of CMC will not deliberately add too much, the first is because of the cost, and the second is afraid to bear the security risks.

  For the use of CMC, we have summarized the following four rules:

  1. When the product is stirred, slowly add CMC to accelerate the dissolution.

  2. In the case of heating, dispersing and slowly adding CMC can also improve the dissolution effect well, but it is worth noting that the heating temperature is not as high as possible, and the optimum temperature is 50 ° C to 60 ° C.

  3. If the CMC is mixed with other products, it is usually possible to uniformly mix the solids first, which is better than adding the dissolution effect when mixing.

  4. It is possible to add an organic solvent such as glycerin or ethanol which is not dissolved in CMC but is compatible with water and then dissolved in water to effectively improve the dissolution efficiency.

  If you want CMC to dissolve quickly in water, you can get good results by following the above 4 points of thinking. Of course, if you need to get the best results, please pay attention to the QR code of this site. We will give you the following text. Provide the best solution.
