Honda uses hydraulicaly engaged clutches in the rear differential. To ensure that the response time of engaging and disengaging the drive force to a wheel, the tolerances for these are very narrow. What you are most likely hearing is the clutch rubbing because it is almost engaged due to the difference in wheel speed because of your turn. This may be a sign of low rear differential fluid or that your rear diff is wearing out. It may also be that you have a pinched line. There are little lines that carry hydraulic fluid to sensors that then mechanically activate the clutches. This noise is kind of like the bad burn out sound on the original Dukes of Hazzard show when they were on dirt. Another sound related to turning and grinding is that your CV joints are really worn out. This should be a very repetitive noise that you can make happen by turning tight complete circles in a paved parking lot at slow speeds. Hope this Helped

Flour (normal wheat flour) is made by grinding wheat until it turns to powder. There are other types of flour (rice flour, soy flour, rye flour, buckwheat flower, etc.) but all are made by grinding grain until it turns to powder. So yes, it manufactured by people but it's not artificial.

My 2004 CRV has just begun to make grinding or rubbing sounds when making tight turns?

Check CV joints, brakes, bearings to start. Probably in that order. If you have oversized or non-standard tires they could be rubbing. More probable: change the fluid in the rear differential. Honda sells a special fluid for this purpose. This is quite approachable and fast as a DIY project. The hardest part will be finding the top and bottom fill plugs and getting them loose the first time.
