THICKENING: TAPIOCA STARCH - ULTRATEX 3 & 8
ULTRA-TEX 3 is a high performance cold water swelling modified food starch derived from tapioca.

It can be used to thicken liquids without the application of heat. Add to liquid and shear well. Retains color and flavor profile of original liquid. Finished product can be dried into a thin crispy sheet. Many of the same properties of xanthan gum without the “snotty” factor.
