There’s wood pulp in our food - and we like it

Posted on 7 July, 2016 at 21:09
You won’t find “wood pulp” listed plainly on any food ingredient labels, but don’t be so quick to turn your nose up at the idea. The powdered cellulose derived from wood pulp already can be found in several shredded or grated cheese products, keeping them from clumping in the packaging when exposed to moisture. And now food scientists are researching how incorporating more wood-based products, mostly pulp and dust, can enhance how other foods feel and keep. 

Finnish researchers have found that the hemicellulose extracted from the pulp of birch trees and then added to many yogurts—the actual name of that ingredient is “xylan”—is one way to keep yogurt feeling smooth. And lignin—which can be found in bark—is one way to ensure morning muffins will be buoyant and fluffy. 

“Lignin proved to be a surprisingly efficient substitute for whole eggs and egg yolks,” according to the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, which finds not only that wood-based products have applications to a lot of foods, but that people might actually like them better that way. “As technology develops, increasingly sophisticated ingredients can be extracted from wood,” the VTT says. 

The use of wood-based food additives already has become more popular for food manufacturers as they experience higher costs for raw materials, such as flour, sugar, and oil, the Wall Street Journal found. And demand for the additives has risen as processed foods become more popular in China and India. But some food manufacturers have been accused of sprinkling the stuff into their products a little too liberally.

I wish to express thanks to you for bailing me out of this scenario. As a result of looking out through the the web and seeing proposals which were not productive, I assumed my entire life was well over. Living without the answers to the difficulties you have resolved as a result of your good short article is a serious case, and ones which might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I hadn't discovered your web site. Your skills and kindness in touching everything was very helpful. I don't know what I would've done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. I'm able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks very much for this skilled and sensible help. I will not hesitate to suggest your web sites to any person who needs and wants tips about this area.
