9 of 9 people found the following review helpfulJanuary 05, 2012Reviewer: Maura in Washington* 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.
