Whether it is about yogurt, dressings or ice cream, one important ingredient for all these products is made ​​at the location of DuPont Nutrition & Health in Zaandam. The site in the Zaan region produces thickening, binding and gelling agents based on guar gum. These products not only find their way into the food industry but are also used in the textile industry, in paper production, oil extraction and cosmetics. The company is located in a former rice mill along the river Zaan. After initial processing of St John’s bread seeds, the site switched to guar seed as raw material.
