Microcrystalline cellulose is used on a large scale in bakeries. It increases bake stability and maintains freshness of bakery products. It prevents the separation of water and oil during the baking process. During the process of dry mixing, microcrystalline cellulose improves the flow property, and also reduces calorie content in bakery food. Microcrystalline cellulose is also employed as an additive while making cheese & cheese products. It helps prevent caking during the manufacturing process and makes processing easy. It helps increase fiber content and reduce value of calories. It also helps improves creaminess in cheese.

Microcrystalline cellulose is also used in ice creams. It is used as an additive, as it controls the ice crystal growth and reduces calories. It is employed in chocolate drinks, as it increases high temperature processing stability; raises the robust holding capacity of the suspension; and adds creaminess and opacity to end products. It is also employed in the preparation of sauces and juices.
