Micro Crystalline Cellulose is a purified and partially depolymerized crystalline powder, which is composed of porous particles. It is tasteless, odorless and white in color. We offer this powder in plain grade. For its manufacturing, cellulose, collected from fibrous material, undergoes controlled hydrolysis with dilute mineral acid. The resulting product is this powder.
Microcrystalline cellulose Powder (MCCP) is a product designed primarily for Pharmaceutical solid dosage formulations. Its suitability for tableting operations is shown by the number & variety of functions it can perform.
It has high absorbent powers, and can be used as a suspending agent, tablet disintegrant and tablet & capsule diluent. Apart from these uses, Micro Crystalline Cellulose Powder also assists in flow of material.
Microcrystalline Cellulose Powder (MCCP), in powder grades, serves as an excellent carrier for the use in the manucacturing of
- Pharmaceutical products for Human use
- Bakery, Pista and Low-caloried food products
- Animal Health Products
