  • Cellulose is the main component of higher plant cell walls and one of the most abundant organic compounds on earth. It is also formed by some algae, fungi, bacteria, and marine animals
  • Commercial sources of cellulose include wood pulp or cotton linters; the short fibers remaining on cottonseeds after the
    long fibers are removed. Cotton fibers are about 98% cellulose, while wood is 40-50% cellulose
  • Cellulose can also be produced from various other plant fibers, such as corn cobs or stalks, soybean hulls, bagasse , oat hulls, rice hulls, wheat straw, sugar beet pulp, bamboo, and fibers such as jute, flax, and ramie among others
  • Microcrystalline cellulose is purified, partially depolymerized cellulose. A fine, white, odorless crystalline powder.
    Insoluble in water, in dilute acids, in most organic solvents, also insoluble in dilute sodium hydroxide solutions
  • Microcrystalline cellulose powders are  the most important pharmaceutical excipients used in tableting, especially for direct compression
  • MCC has quality and performance
    advantages in tablet filling, and
    binding uses, including good compaction under low compression pressure.
  •  Microcrystalline cellulose is made from fibrous cellulose (mainly wood pulp), which consists of an ordered region (microcrystal) and a less-ordered region (amorphous regions)
  • Microcrystalline cellulose is a white, odorless tasteless, extra flowing powder which is relatively free from organic and non organic contaminants.
  • Microcrystalline cellulose used as anti caking agents, stabilizes foams, stabilizes emulsions, extend starches etc
  • The world food market for MCC is estimated to be above DKK 500 million
