    Reviewer: A customer in New York
    Very useful for low-carb thickening. Works in cold as well as hot, unlike guar gum which seems to require heat. Good for thickening powdered shakes or de-glazing pan for sauces for sauteed food. Requires experimenting: has great thickening power. Making a gravy with 1 cup of stock or thickening a 12 oz. shake requires only about 1/4 teaspoon. Also, goes through stages in cooking so start very slowly.

    This is a good thickener. However, it will take practice on my part to get it right. I tried using it by sprinkling it in chili, just to overcome the 'wateryness'. But it started clumping so I tried mixing it in cold water first. It still clumped and made the cold water thick. I scraped the mixture in the chili anyway and let it simmer. By the time the chili was ready it had a perfect texture that let you savor it on your tongue like a very thin gravy. AND, there was not a clump in sight! Great product, will continue practicing.

    Easy to use, does not clump hot or cold. Use it in protein shakes, gravies,soups for low carb thickening.

    This works great for certain things; stir fry sauce, jelly, ketchup and more, slightly in stews etc. When this jar is gone, I will order another.

    I made chili, I like it thick. I used this a little at a time based on reviews. It turned out great and was even better as had no added cards etc. BUT, you have to listen to the reviews. Use only a small amount at a time. Only a pinch.
