Most common thickeners, such as cornflour, are often treated with chemicals and processed vigorously. With Clearspring’s Organic Kuzu Root Starch you get a fantastic, natural, organic starch.
Sourced in Japan, this starch is a thickener of the highest quality, creating a wonderfully smooth texture and a completely neutral flavour. As a result, it is perfect for soups and stews, sauces and glazes both savoury and sweet, as well as pie fillings. If something needs thickening, use Clearspring’s Organic Kuzu Root Starch.
Completely plant-based and organic, this starch is gluten-free, fat-free and sugar-free. Not only that, it is also very low in salt and low in saturated fat.
Crush the chunks and dissolve them in a small amount of cold water. Then add the mix to your cooking liquid, heat, and stir continuously until thick and translucent. A half to one tablespoon of kuzu will thicken one cup of liquid. Please note: 1 ¾ tbsp. of Kuzu can replace 1 tbsp of corn flour.
