Elisabeth Hasselbeck is not a reliable source. I have not read her book, but many people have posted about erroneous information in it.


Thank you for all of your help :)

You're welcome, Lena. I don't know where you heard this is not safe. I googled hydroxypropyltrimonium and came up with the following.

Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride is a water-soluble derivative of natural guar gum, and delivers conditioning properties to shampoos and after-shampoo hair care products.

Guar gum doesn't contain gluten. You can trust Unilever on their labeling.



It was listed in the Gluten-Free diet: a gluten free-survival guide by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and in Delight gluten free magazine. Thank you for clarifying this for me, I really appreciate it.

Thank you Sylvia

I am a newly diagnosed ciliac and am finding it very difficult, people haven't been very friendly or supportive so I thank you for being so helpful. The item I inquired about contains hydroxypropyltrimonium I have two sources that list this as a common hidden source of gluten found in beauty products.
