Hello, I just signed up for this forum and I had a question which I trust the experts here will be able to answer.
I'm looking for a substitute for E461 Methylcellulose which is "naturally" derived. Therefore I'm seeking something along the lines of a flax lignan or other natural dietary fiber but which is in powder form and doesn't contain the oils, etc. which drive the caloric value up. It doesn't have to be from flax as it could be derived from any grain, nut, vegetable peel, etc. The key is that the caloric value be very low or even close to zero as in the case of E461. It is not important that it be soluble, only that it is GRAS.
Any assistance would be appreciated!
