Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC)
Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is a white, granular powder used in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications. Shandong Head has branded their HPMC as Headcel®. HPMC forms a gelled suspension when dissolved in water, allowing it to work as an emulsifier, thickening and suspension agent as well as an alternative to animal gelatin in food applications.
