MCC Quick Facts
Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) is made of plant fiber (Cellulose). Cellulose is an insoluble and indigestable (Therefore non-caloric) dietary fiber.
There are two grades of MCC: Pure MCC for pharmaceutical use and MCC Colloidal grade for stabilizing system in food.
FibroTec MCC is a Colloidal MCC that mainly functions as food stabilizer or hydrocolloid.
FibroTec MCC optimizes products such as milk products, ice cream, beverages, donuts and bakery, sauces and dressings, etc.
Using FibroTec MCC as a your choiced stabilizer will give many advantages. To make an optimal stabilizing system, NNT recommends combining FibroTec MCC with other hydrocolloids such as Carrageenan, Pectin, Gellan Gum, Alginate, LBG, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, etc.

Paracrystalline Region
Most of fiber-rich plants contains hemicellulose, lignin, glucose, and cellulose. By going through hydrolysis process, cellulose is collected to be further processed.

The insoluble crystalline fraction in each microfibril of cellulose is than extracted to make Microcrystalline Cellulose.

Finally, MCC is co-polymerized with other hydrocolloids to create a stabilizer with a unique characteristics, commonly called Colloidal Grade MCC
FibroTec MCC is produced from selected wood-pulp from forests worldwide with reliable sustainability program to fulfill our responsibility toward social and ecological balance. Our unique MCC has gone through a systematic controlled hydrolysis and co-polymerization process in a HACCP, FSSC-22000, Halal, and Kosher conforming facility.
FibroTec in Your Products
Adding FibroTec in your product has many benefits. It optimizes the functionality of other ingredients to give you the best performance in you products. FibroTec gives you these benefits by creating a three-dimensional matrix with water or other liquid media. This network suspends and traps particles to prevent any ingredient separation, color separation and moisture migration.

To take full advantage of the functionality of FibroTec, it is essential to first let FibroTec to develop its weak gel network with the liquid media by mixing it well with the main ingredient of the product. In liquid products, it is necessary to disperse FibroTec in a high-speed mixer. Furthermore, using a homogenizer for product dispersion will help FibroTec to function at its best.

In a semi-solid products, it is also best to disperse FibroTec in liquid before adding other ingredients. When adding FibroTec in your product, it is advised to add salt, acid and calcium at the end of the process.
Microcrystalline Cellulose
Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) is derived from plant fibers that are widely available in trees, grass, cotton, and other fiber-rich plants. It is a naturally non-caloric indigestible dietary fiber that is widely used as binders and anticaking agent in food and pharmaceutical industries.
