Abstract Following a request from the European Commission, the EFSA Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources added to Food (ANS) was asked to deliver a scientific opinion re‐evaluating the safety of microcrystalline cellulose (E 460(i)), powdered cellulose (E 460(ii)), methyl cellulose (E 461), ethyl cellulose (E 462), hydroxypropyl cellulose (E 463), hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (E 464), ethyl methyl cellulose (E 465), sodium carboxy methyl cellulose (E 466), enzymatically hydrolysed… 
Safety and efficacy of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose for all animal species
TLDR
In the absence of data, the FEEDAP Panel was not in the position to conclude on the safety of hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose for the user, but the additive is considered to be efficacious in feedingstuffs for all animal species.
Safety and efficacy of methyl cellulose for all animal species
TLDR
The FEEDAP Panel concluded that methyl cellulose is considered safe for all animal species and the use ofethyl cellulose in animal nutrition is of no concern for consumer safety.
Safety and efficacy of ethyl cellulose for all animal species
TLDR
The FEEDAP Panel concluded that ethyl cellulose is considered safe for all animal species and the use of ethyl Cellulose in animal nutrition is of no concern for consumer safety.
Safety and efficacy of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose for all animal species
TLDR
The FEEDAP Panel concluded that sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is considered safe for all animal species and safe for the environment, and the additive is considered to be efficacious in feedingstuffs for allAnimal species.
Safety and efficacy of hydroxypropyl cellulose for all animal species
TLDR
In the absence of data, the FEEDAP Panel was not in the position to conclude on the safety of hydroxypropyl cellulose for the user, and the additive is considered to be efficacious in feedingstuffs for all animal species.
Safety and efficacy of microcrystalline cellulose for all animal species
TLDR
In the absence of data, the FEEDAP Panel was not in the position to conclude on the safety of microcrystalline cellulose for the user, and the additive is considered to be efficacious in feedingstuffs for all animal species.
Oligomers of Carboxymethyl Cellulose for Postharvest Treatment of Fresh Produce: The Effect on Fresh-Cut Strawberry in Combination with Natural Active Agents
In this study, oligomers of carboxymethyl cellulose (O-CMC) were used as a new postharvest treatment for fresh produce. The oligomers were prepared by green and cost-effective enzymatic hydrolysis
Are cellulose nanocrystals “alien particles” to human experience?

Food additive emulsifiers: a review of their role in foods, legislation and classifications, presence in food supply, dietary exposure, and safety assessment.
TLDR
Current research on the health effects of food additive emulsifiers are limited to in vitro and murine studies and small, acute studies in humans, and future research should focus on controlled human trials of longer duration.

Safety of the proposed amendment of the specifications for microcrystalline cellulose (E 460(i)) as a food additive
TLDR
The EFSA Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources added to Food provided a scientific opinion regarding the safety of an amendment of the specifications for the food additive microcrystalline cellulose that would not give rise to a safety concern, but recommended that the concentration of sodium hydroxide solution to be used in the solubility test should be indicated in the EU specifications.
