APB produces a powdered Cellulose MICCEL – P which consists of pure alpha cellulose to facilitate usage in the food industry. Its particles are rod shaped, which above certain concentration build a three dimensional network in water system through hydrogen bonding. Being so stable in nature, it is often use in the food industry as an additive because it improves stability, gives an improved texture, increases consistency and creaminess in case of liquid consumables, acts as a bulking agent, and an anti-sticking extrusion aid. It also reduces fat pickup in fried foods and gives them their golden yellow color.
