A Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) Panel is a highly effective method to develop a cold stable product. It is designed to determine the proper addition of CMC to inhibit tartrate crystallization. Initial cold stability by conductivity is performed to determine range of CMC required. Additions in the determined range are made and followed by a cold stability by conductivity of the treated samples. Results will identify the lowest addition rate that is considered acceptable. Heat stability and colloidal stability are performed on both control and treated samples.
