So, what is hydroxypropyl-cellulose?

Hydroxypropyl cellulose is a plant-derived food ingredient commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It is a type of modified cellulose that has been chemically altered by adding hydroxypropyl groups to its structure, resulting in a highly water-soluble and viscous polymer. Hydroxypropyl cellulose has a neutral taste and odor and is compatible with a wide range of food products, including baked goods, dairy products, and beverages. It is also used in pharmaceuticals and personal care products as a binder, film-former, and viscosity modifier. This versatile ingredient provides excellent functionality, improves product texture, and enhances mouthfeel, making it a popular choice in the food industry.
