    Please forgive my ignorance but is cellulose a type of sugar? I am trying to find a toothpaste and so far have come across one that contains cellulose but no mention of other types of sugars so is it a sugar?

    Cellulose is a structural component of the cell wall of green plants.
    So to answer your question, no, it’s not a type of sugar. It’s used as a binder in lots of products, including capsules used for supplements.
