ThickenThin not/Starch thickener

The manufacturer of this product is no longer in business but Netrition recommends Dixie Carb Counters Thick It Up Low Carb Thickener which is very similar.

ThickenThin not/Starch thickener is the perfect thickener for lowcarb or grain-free diets. It recreates 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. (Note: Expert Foods follows US nutrition label law which requires reporting 4 calories per gram from soluble fiber, even though the human body cannot digest it.)

Use in sauces, soups, gravies, salad dressings, and marinades.

ThickenThin not/Starch thickener 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 reheat 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 set up firm.

And, not/Starch has other uses. While using it to give made-from-cauliflower risotto the proper slightly soupy texture is logical, some of the other uses are quite different. For example, it can 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 ThickenThin not/Starch thickener like cornstarch. However, a teaspoon thickens a bit more than one teaspoon of cornstarch, and one tablespoon of not/Starch thickens more like 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch.
