Texturas Metil, Jellification Group 10.6 oz. description:
Chefs Albert & Ferran Adria of el Bulli’s Creation – 10.6 oz/300 gr, Spain.
Gelifier extracted from the cellulose of vegetables. Unlike other gelifiers, Metil (with a metilcellulose base) gelifies when heat is applied. When cold it acts as a thickener. There is a wide range of viscosity in metilcelluloses, which affects the final result of the gelification. Metil has been chosen for its great gelifying power and reliability.
Characteristics: Available in powder form. Mix cold, shaking vigorously, and leave to rest in the refrigerator until it reaches 4° C for hydration. Next apply a temperature with an interval between 40 and 60° C. When the product cools it loses gel capacity and becomes liquid.
