Introduction of product:

Microcrystalline cellulose is a pure depolymerized cellulose that is produced by hydrolyzing cellulose precursors with mineral acids, and is usually found as a pulp or other fibrous material. A hydrolysis process breaks up cellulose polymers into smaller chains or microcrystals in the presence of water and acid.

Applications Or where it is used:

The term microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) refers to the refined form of wood pulp, and it is used as a texturizing ingredient, an anti-caking agent, a fat substitute, an emulsifier and an extender in food production. A vitamin supplement or tablet is the most common form.

Manufacturing process:

Different processes are available for the synthesis of MCC, including reaction extrusion, enzyme mediated, steam explosion, and acid hydrolysis. A neutralized aqueous slurry of hydrolyzed cellulose is commonly spray-dried into an intermediate product. It is used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food industries.

How to use:

Microcrystalline cellulose is an excipient that is commonly used for direct compression, according to many publications. In addition, it also functions as a hard, dry binder, tablet disintegrant, absorbent, lubricant, and anti-adhesive.

Side effects:

You may experience discomfort/irritation/redness, tearing, light sensitivity, sticky eyelashes, or temporarily blurred vision. In the event of any of these side effects persisting or worsening, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Warnings and precautions while using this product:

Containers should be tightly sealed. In tightly closed containers, store in a cool, dry place. Workplace ventilation should be adequate. Information on explosions and fires: None known.
