* I love love love this product. It works so well and thickens sauce so fast. The nice thing about it is you just add it to the gravy or what you need to thicken and just whisk it around. No adding to water and mixing up first. I always start out with a small about 1/2 t then add just to make sure I don't add too much. I will buy this product again and again.
* We love this product, this is the perhaps the 10th time we've ordered it, the third from Netrition. This is a product that you have to learn how to use or it will get gloppy and slimy, you absolutely use no more than 1/2 teaspoon or less for each 2 cups of liquid for gravy, less for soups. We use this all the time, it makes great gravy, sauces and soups. I haven't tried puddings. You have to use a whisk, I use a spoon held over the boiling pot and tap a bit in with the whisk and whisk like crazy each addition. It gets thicker as it cooks for awhile, after 5 or 10 minutes it becomes a nice consistency, as it would if you used a traditional slurry. Give it a try but be sure not to use too much.
* Use this successfully as the thickener in my sugar free peach pie; sugar free canned peaches (Del Monte and Libby has a line of them), a little stevia, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, a little butter, put the whole into pie dough (still working on a reduced carb pie dough I like), and out comes a dessert I actually enjoy and prefer more than the sugar sweetened/cornstarch thickened peach pies I ate in the past. It is expensive, but I only use 1/2 teaspoon for the whole pie. Recommend.
* Yes I recommend this product, it does thicken up soups, sauces, juice for cobbler, etc. Use as directed...some might tend to use too much, 2 teaspoons dissolved in water for a whole pot of chili or stew, then cook a while longer it will thicken up.
