I love love love this product. It works so well and thickens sauce so fast. The nice thing about it is you just add it to the gravy or what you need to thicken and just whisk it around. No adding to water and mixing up first. I always start out with a small about 1/2 t then add just to make sure I don't add too much. I will buy this product again and again.
We love this product, this is the perhaps the 10th time we've ordered it, the third from Netrition. This is a product that you have to learn how to use or it will get gloppy and slimy, you absolutely use no more than 1/2 teaspoon or less for each 2 cups of liquid for gravy, less for soups. We use this all the time, it makes great gravy, sauces and soups. I haven't tried puddings. You have to use a whisk, I use a spoon held over the boiling pot and tap a bit in with the whisk and whisk like crazy each addition. It gets thicker as it cooks for awhile, after 5 or 10 minutes it becomes a nice consistency, as it would if you used a traditional slurry. Give it a try but be sure not to use too much.
Use this successfully as the thickener in my sugar free peach pie; sugar free canned peaches (Del Monte and Libby has a line of them), a little stevia, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, a little butter, put the whole into pie dough (still working on a reduced carb pie dough I like), and out comes a dessert I actually enjoy and prefer more than the sugar sweetened/cornstarch thickened peach pies I ate in the past. It is expensive, but I only use 1/2 teaspoon for the whole pie. Recommend.
I was looking for a replacement for ThickenThin not/Starch which is no longer available.
This certainly does the trick and thickens food very well. Be aware, however, that this product will seize up instantly if you attempt to mix it with a small amount of water before adding it to your final liquid. The result is some thickening of the final liquid but LOT of gelatinous lumps.
What I've found works best is to put a small amount of Thick It Up in a metal strainer and tap it into your final liquid as if you were lightly dusting something with powdered sugar. Stir that in and check the thickness. Repeat until you get the final liquid as thick as desired. It takes a while but it really avoids the lumps or the library paste issues.
Recommended Use: Add 1/2 teaspoon per cup of liquids such as soups, gravies, sauces and fruit fillings. Whisk or stir into liquid, heat until reaching the desired thickness. Liquids will continue to thicken as they cool.
Warning: Made in a plant that processes soy, eggs, milk and peanuts.
