CMC      CARBOXYMETHYLCELLULOSE extract from :-

I make my own paste for modelling due to the uncertainty of the ready made bought Sugarpaste

This product mixed with egg white & Icing sugar 'sets' the paste

Improves texture, stabilizes foam (beer), prevents fruit from settling, prevents sugar from crystallizing (cake icings), binds water (used in diet foods): Ice cream, beer, pie fillings and jellies, cake icings, diet foods. Cellulose is a safe and inexpensive carbohydrate that comprises the woody parts and cell walls of plants. Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is a safe thickening agent that is made by reacting cellulose (wood pulp, cotton lint) with a derivative of acetic acid (the acid in vinegar). It is also called cellulose gum. CMC is not absorbed or digested, so it might be included in with "dietary fiber" on food labels (it isn't as healthful as fiber obtained from natural foods).
