Show your students gelatinisation with our instant, cold water swelling starch. Mix it with juices such as cranberry, orange and apple juice and watch it thicken.
The food industry uses it to thicken tomato juice to make passata, and apple juice to make apple sauce. The starch also adds pulpiness and improves mouthfeel.
You can invent thickened fruit juices, mix it with mix or yogurt and see how it gelatinises instantly when mixed with a liquid of your choice.
In the food industry this saves heating and mixing to make sauces, and so saves costs.
Wish it was available for the rest of us to use! Jenny Ridgwell
Please note – the sample is labelled ‘don’t eat’. This is because it was packed in a kitchen but not in a food regulated place. As a non edible sample, it does not have to comply with food labelling regulations which specify best before date, detailed labelling and ingredients list but the large pack will be packed so that it can be tasted and provide all this information. The sample is packed in food safe polythene.
