Hydroxypropyl Guar

Hydroxypropyl guar is a natural thickener derived from guar gum. The guar plant (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba) is a domesticated legume crop, with 80% of the world's production in India. Beans are harvested, dehusked, roasted, hydrated and ground to produce guar gum - which is used to thicken many foods, personal care products and also as a chemical component of industrial fracking.
