Cellulose is a type of fiber that is responsible for the structural rigidity of cell walls in plants. As with all other forms of fiber, it can not be digested by humans, but can be digested by herbivores and ruminants (cattle, goats, sheep, etc.). Due to its importance in plant structure, this chemical is considered to be one of the most abundant organic compounds on earth.
Due to the abundance of cellulose in plant material, this is a common source of dietary fiber. See: Dietary fiber
