Products: Cellulosics
Their products are sold under the tradenames: Akucell

http://www.akzonobel.com/

Products: cellulosics, guar, starch, cyclodextrins

Their products are sold under the tradenames: Aquacel™, Aqualon™, Blanose™, Aquasorb™, and Bondwell™ cellulose gum (CMC); Benecel™ methylcellulose (MC) and hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC); Klucel™ and AeroWhip™ hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC); Supercol™ guar gum and Polyclar™ stabilizers.

HPMC is used a lot in batters, as when mixed into cold water, it increases the batter viscosity and thus leads to better adhesion to the product. Then upon frying, the HPMC gels and thus forms a barrier to reduce both oil uptake and water migration.

Hydrocolloids can be obtained from a wide variety of sources. The two most abundant polysaccharides are cellulose and starch. Cellulose is the key structural component of trees and is used on a huge scale globally in the pulp and paper industry.
