Microcrystalline Cellulose can used as a texturizer, an anti-caking agent, a fat substitute, an emulsifier, an extender, and a bulking agent in food production.
The most common usage for Microcrystalline Cellulose is added in vitamin supplements or tablets.
It can also be used in plaque assays for counting viruses. This time, Microcrystalline Cellulose is an alternative to carboxymethyl cellulose.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is a connective agent added to prescription drugs, over the counter medications, and dietary supplements. Microcrystalline Cellulose is also known as cellulose.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC comes in a powder form which then goes through a chemical process to be utilized as an additive in supplements to help the well being of individuals concerned with fitness and their overall health.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC will not be absorbed into the blood stream or stomach. The property make Microcrystalline Cellulose a fairly safe product. Minimal side effects may still be experienced when taking Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC Manufacturing process:
Microcrystalline Cellulose is a product of certain types of rubbery plants. The pulp, commonly known as wood pulp, is torn up and then dunked in hot mineral acid. All of the pollutants and chemicals are then removed in order to produce useable Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC.
Usages and Applications:
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is used in a lot of products. For example, it is widely found in cheese, fat free salad dressings, whipped toppings, and baked goods.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is also an ingredient existing in many prescription drugs for allergies, inactive or overactive thyroid, blood pressure and other diseases.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is also found in weight training products.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC Benefits:
It provides many benefits when Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is applied as a connective agent in prescription drugs, over the counter medications, and dietary supplements. Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC allows the creation of an unbreakable pill or tablet.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC also enables the breakdown of the supplement, medicine, or over the counter drug at the proper rate for optimal absorption.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC has no taste or flavor, with will make it much more easily taken.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is also used to prevent thickening in many food products because of its texture and chemical makeup. Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is often used in whey protein powders and drinks containing whey.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is utilized in whey products as a thickening agent as well as to promote absorption. The benefits of whey include improved muscle mass, muscle recovery, and increased energy.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC in large quantities may enhance weight loss. This is either due to the increased urge to rid your body of waste, the preventing of nutrients being absorbed by the body, or the result of a curbed appetite.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is now saled in powder form if you wish to mix up your own supplements and need to use it as an excipient.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC Side Effects:
It may cause mild adverse reactions in certain individuals. It will increase stool production.
Other reported side effects of Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC include depression, forgetfulness, lack of energy, and headaches.
Microcrystalline Cellulose Positive Reviews
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC will be helpful for the individuals who suffer from Celiac’s disease. If the Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC came from wheat then it will have some chances to cause sensitivities to those allergic to gluten.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is a purified, partially depolymerized cellulose prepared by treating alpha-cellulose, obtained as a pulp from fibrous plant material, with mineral acids. The degree of polymerization is typically less than 400. Not more than 10% of the material has a particle size of less than 5 m.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC
Not less than 97% of carbohydrate calculated as cellulose on the dried basis
Fine, white or almost white, odourless, free flowing crystalline powder
Emulsifier, stabilizer, anticaking and dispersing agent
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is insoluble in water, ethanol, ether and dilute mineral acids. Slightly soluble in sodium hydroxide solution
The infrared absorption spectrum of a potassium bromide dispersion of the sample corresponds to the infrared spectrum in the Appendix
Loss on drying
Not more than 7.0% (105 °, 3h)
5.0 - 7.5
Not more than 0.05%
Not more than 2 mg/kg
Mix 30 g of the sample with 270 ml of water in a high-speed (18,000 rpm) blender for 5 min. Transfer 100 ml of the mixture to a 100-ml graduated cylinder, and allow to stand for 3h. A white opaque, bubble-free dispersion which does form a supernatant liquid at the surface, is obtained.To 20 ml of this dispersion add a few drops of iodine TS, and mix. No purplish to blue or blue colour should be produced.
METHOD OF ASSAY
Transfer about 125 mg of the sample, accurately weighed, to a 300-ml Erlenmeyer flask, using about 25 ml of water. Add 50.0 ml of 0.5N potassium dichromate, mix, then carefully add 100 ml of sulfuric acid, and heat to boiling. Remove from heat, allow to stand at room temperature for 15 min, cool in a water bath, and transfer into a 250-ml volumetric flask. Dilute with water almost to volume, cool to 25 °, then dilute to volume with water, and mix. Titrate a 50.0-ml aliquot with 0.1N ferrous ammonium sulfate, using 2 or 3 drops of ortho-phenanthroline TS as the indicator, and record the volume required as S, in ml. Perform a blank determination, and record the volume of 0. IN ferrous ammonium sulfate required as B, in ml. Calculate the percentage of cellulose in the sample by the formula:
in which W is the weight of sample taken, in mg, corrected for Loss on Drying.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is a purified, partly depolymerised cellulose with shorter, crystalline polymer chains. Its strong binding performance make it one of the most commonly used fillers and binders in drug formulations, together with Lactose. Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is produced by controlled partial hydrolysis of high purity wood pulp, followed by purification and drying.
For formulation development, Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is able to be utilized in a wide variety of oral solid dosage forms, including tablets, capsules, sachets, pellets and others. Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC is widely used in diverse pharmaceutical processes, such as wet granulation, dry granulation or direct compression. Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC with low moisture-content are especially useful for application with moisture sensitive APIs.
Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC has high compactability properties, which means that strong tablets can be made at low forces. These low forces can increase life of tooling during tableting step in production, even when the proportion of active ingredient within a tablet is high. In addition, tablets containing Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC, can be made to disintegrate readily when a superdisintegrant. Combined together with various directly compressible lactose (DCL) grades (granulated, anhydrous, spray dried), Microcrystalline Cellulose USP/BP/EP/FCC exhibits improved functional properties which can be useful for direct compression applications.
