1. Food grade sodium carboxymethyl starch
Sodium carboxymethyl starch (CMS) is a modified starch etherified with carboxymethyl, which is odorless, non-toxic, not easy to mildew, and easily soluble in water. Applied to different foods, it exhibits various functions such as thickening, suspension, emulsification, stabilization, shape retention, film formation, puffing, freshness preservation, acid resistance and health care. Performance is superior to carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is the best product to replace CMC.
Food grade sodium carboxymethyl starch is widely used in milk, beverage, frozen food, fast food, pastry, syrup and other products. In addition, CMS is physiologically inert and has no calorific value, so it can also be used to produce low-calorie foods to achieve ideal results.
2. Pharmaceutical grade sodium carboxymethyl starch
Sodium carboxymethyl starch (CMS) is widely used in medicine. As far as pharmaceutical preparations are concerned, CMS can replace gelatin as a raw material for making capsules, tablets, and sugar coatings. It has strong water absorption and expansibility and can bubble up quickly in cold water. Moreover, after absorbing water, the particles swell but do not dissolve, do not form a colloidal solution, and do not hinder the continuous infiltration of water and affect the further disintegration of the tablet. Therefore, it can be used as an efficient disintegrant and excipient for insoluble drugs and soluble drug tablets.
3. Paper grade sodium carboxymethyl starch
Sodium carboxymethyl starch (CMS) is a modified starch etherified with carboxymethyl. Performance is superior to carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC). The best product to replace CMC. CMS is widely used in papermaking. It is added to the filler as a stabilizer to thicken and bind.
It makes the paper shiny and bright, improves the printing performance of the paper, and enhances the toughness and abrasion resistance of the paper. Used as an additive in slurry to improve the effect of retention and drainage. It is also used for surface sizing of paper, which can significantly improve the dry strength and wet strength, oil resistance, ink absorption and water resistance of paper. Used in coating and bonding can improve the production and performance of paper.
