    "cellulose’s water-absorbing properties can mimic fat, he said, allowing consumers to reduce their fat intake."

    I believe The SausageMakers Fat Replacer uses  microcrystalline cellulose.

    Yeah, cellulose is used in many products now days. I've noticed it on the ingredients list of labels for many years now, and when I first saw it, my initial thought was "isn't that paper???". I've even seen it listed for some vitamin/mineral suppliment tablets. I don't have a problem with it if they need to use something as a binder for something we consume in low quantities, but when it's a main ingredient in a food, well, that's going way to far. The products listed on the pages found at the above link are, well, pretty extensive and vast.

    And, to top it all off, wouldn't that mean that we're actually eating one of our valuable resources? Trees provide construction materials for the typical rural/suburban home, not to mention reducing the greenhouse gas, CO2.

    I doubt that the amounts of it's uses will change (except that it will become even more prevelant), but it's good info to know, and allows us to make informed decisions on what we're willing put in our stomachs.

    Thanks for the info, soloryellow!

    Yeah.... I have never trusted "low fat", "zero calory", or any of those labels. All that stuff they have to add to it to make it "healthy" is usually worse than the stuff it replaces.

    Cellulose is just another way to get fiber in your diet. Most people don't eat enough fiber.

    I am gnawing on a 2x4 right now. It does kinda remind me of Taco Bell.
