Great cornstarch substitute

Posted   by KATHLEEN
I like to use this organic kuzu root starch in lieu of corn starch or tapioca starch. It gives a thickening like cornstarch without using as much - and without using a corn product. It is flavorless.

Eden Foods sells the best of everything. The owner, Mike Potter, is an old friend who I know to be a man of the highest integrity, who goes out of his way to find and make available the very best products. His company takes no shortcuts and never compromises on quality. If you want The Real Thing, you can always count on Eden Foods!

This is great thickener. I have many food sensitivities and this doesn't make me feel bad like most other thickening agents. It also has a totally neutral flavor and works really well for soup and sauces. Doesn't create that slimy gelatinous texture that corn starch does.

Amazing thickening agent without the raw flour or odd corn starch taste. Dissolve in a cold liquid BEFORE adding to hot! You too will be amazed.
