Metil is a gelifier extracted from the cellulose of vegetables. Unlike other gelifiers, this Metil by Texturas has metilcellulose base which gelifies when heat is applied. When cold, it acts as a thickener. Metil is often selected by chefs for its great gelifying power and reliability. Metil gelifies when heat is applied and is very desirable when trying to stick together hot food items.
This Metil comes from Albert and Ferrán Andrià – highly praised creative chefs of the world-renowned El Bulli restaurant in Catalonia, Spain.
