NISSO HPC (Hydroxypropyl Cellulose) is a modified cellulose obtained by reacting propylene oxide with cellulose. The presence of hydroxypropoxy group prevents the hydrogen bonding between the hydroxy groups on the cellulose chain, thereby making HPC soluble.

NISSO HPC was first sold in Japan in 1969 and is globally approved for use in food product and as a pharmaceutical excipient. Nippon Soda has multiple manufacturing lines in Niigata, Japan which have been fully IPEC GMP compliant since 2010.
