Methocel F50 is a type of methylcellulose. Methylcellulose is made from cellulose pulp, which is taken from plants' cell walls. Methylcellulose is one of the most interesting ingredients due to its unusual property of gelling as it gets hot and melting as it cools.
There are about 20 kinds of methylcellulose and while similar, they all have different properties. Methocel F50 is commonly used to stabilize foams, especially whipped foams.
