AeroWhip™ hydroxypropylcellulose

AeroWhip 630 hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC) is an optimized grade of HPC for stabilizing dairy and nondairy whipped toppings. In nondairy whipped toppings, AeroWhip 630 HPC creates stiff foams, increases overrun and controls syneresis. For dairy whipping creams, the amount of milk fat can be reduced significantly, leading to a healthier and more cost-effective product with a creamy mouthfeel. AeroWhip 630 HPC is compatible with common emulsifier and stabilizer ingredients.

AeroWhip 630 HPC is soluble in cold water, but should be dispersed in warm water (50 ºC) followed by cooling with low agitation. This will provide a smooth, clear solution.
