E469 - Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, enzymatically hydrolysed (Cellulose gum, enzymatically hydrolyzed): Cellulose is a by-product of cotton production GM-cotton is grown on a large scale in many countries and primarily in the USA, China and India. One may assume that a certain portion of cotton raw materials stem from GM plants. In the EU, numerous GM cotton plants are approved for use as food and feed. Cellulose and other additives derived from these GM cotton plants also are approved.
