Microcrystalline Cellulose


Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is a versatile, finely powdered material obtained from cellulose, a complex carbohydrate found in plant cell walls. It is produced by subjecting cellulose to hydrolysis, purification, and controlled fragmentation processes. MCC is composed of small crystalline particles, typically in the range of 2-10 micrometers in size.


  • It is widely used as an excipient in pharmaceuticals, where it serves as a binder, disintegrant, and filler in tablet formulations
  • In the food industry, MCC is employed as a food additive and bulking agent.
  • MCC is used in the manufacturing of cosmetics, personal care products, and detergents. It acts as a stabilizer, emulsifier, and rheology modifier, contributing to the desired texture, viscosity, and stability of these products.
  • MCC is an inert and biodegradable material, making it environmentally friendly. Its unique combination of properties, including excellent compressibility, flowability, and high surface area, makes it a valuable ingredient in various applications across multiple industries.
