Flax - Z- Snax Quick & Thick Food Thickener and Texturizer temporarily unavailable
Quick & Thick Food Thickener and Texturizer is the perfect thickener for lowcarb or grain-free diets. It re-creates the thick rich textures you want without adding calories, fat, or carbohydrates. It even gives you fiber . . . the soluble fiber that is so hard to get on a restricted diet.
Use in sauces, soups, gravies, salad dressings, and marinades. Quick & Thick Food Thickener and Texturizer is easy to use, dissolves directly in hot or cold liquids, and doesn't get lumpy on cooling, even with very thick liquids. In other words, it works for dishes that are served cold, or you can even easily re-heat gravy or thick sauces without loss of quality. On the other hand, the fact that it doesn't actually solidify means that it isn't as good as cornstarch for pudding pies or other dishes where you need it to firm up.
You can use Quick & Thick Food Thickener and Texturizer to give made-from-cauliflower risotto the proper slightly soupy texture. It can also be used to make flatbreads or crackers out of nuts and/or seeds. And a customer used it to improve the texture and melt of her homemade churned ice creams (but it will NOT keep them soft -- nothing available currently does that adequately without adding carbs).
Use Quick & Thick Food Thickener and Texturizer like cornstarch. However, a teaspoon thickens a bit more than one teaspoon of cornstarch. One tablespoon of Quick & Thick thickens more like 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch.

Recommended Use: Thickens just like cornstarch. Easy to dissolve. Use it for soups, gravies and puddings. Use it to add bulk and texturize when replacing sugar with any sweetener.
