Methylcellulocse powder.  Gels when heated.

More Information

Unlike other gelling agents, Mëticel gels with increasing temperature.

When the product cools, it loses its gelation and becomes a liquid.

This allows for fine purees and mincing, so that they melt in the mouth.

It can be applied to masses of products for frying, e.g. croquettes to retain water and thus prevent them from breaking during frying.

It is a fiber type carbohydrate whose origin is vegetable cellulose.

It is very efficient. A 250 gr. package is enough for about 1000 portions of 100 gr. of different products.

Characteristics and applications:

  • It is presented as a finely ground powder.
  • Mix cold or warm, stirring vigorously, and let stand in the refrigerator until 4ºC for hydration. Then apply temperature.
  • It is a gelling agent that acts completely backwards, it gels when the temperature increases. It begins to gel at 55ºC and above.
  • Dosage to obtain very soft gelled products: 2-5 g/l.
  • Dosage to obtain consistent gelled products: 5-15 g/l.
  • Available in 250 gr. and 45 gr. packages.

6 g Töufood Fishgël
Mix 200 g of the juice with Mëticel, at room
temperature. Stir constantly with a stick blender
until the Mëticel is thoroughly dispersed. Put the
mixture in the fridge at 4 ºC for, at least, 12 hours,
for a perfect hydration. Hydrate the Fishgël with
the rest of the cold fruit juice. Add some cold
water, if necessary (it must be 4 parts of cold cold
liquid for 1 part of Fishgël). Disperse, heating the
mixture up to 50 ºC. Add the mixture of Mëticel
and leave it outside the fridge, until reaching, at
least, 14 ºC. Place in a container and start
beating. Once a little foam is obtained, add the
gelatine mixture at about 35-40 ºC, and keep
beating constantly until achieving a sponge

Once cooled, leave to rest until achieving up to 14
ºC. Mix the remaining 50 g of Passion fruit with
the Fishgël, previously hydrated in cold water (1
part of Fishgël in 4 parts of cold water). Then,
heat gently at 35 ºC, approximately. Blend the
Mëticel, the sugar and the Passion fruit at 14 ºC
and add the gelled Passion fruit. Beat the mixture
until achieving a merengue texture and fill a
pastry sleeve in the desired shape (Wotsits, e.g.).
