A gluten-free, multi-functional, highly dispersible instant thickening starch for use in both hot and cold applications, Ultratex is a must have product for any kitchen. It is an extremely versatile, high performance, thickening starch. It can be added to both hot and cold liquid preparations until the desired thickness is reached. It is a tasteless, colourless and gluten free powder.

When added to a liquid it disperses quickly and evenly without forming lumps. Perfectly flavoured sauces, drinks, gels or any other liquid can be thickened to an ideal texture and consistency without compromising the flavour. Simply add 1-5% for instant thickening, hot or cold.

If you are looking to create the perfect fluid gel or stock, it is very quick and easy. Just add to vegetable or fruit juices, milkshakes, smoothies, stocks, sorbets, creams, or any flavoured liquids. Ultratex is also freeze-thaw stable and prevents the leaching of liquids. Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians. Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Kosher friendly, Halal friendly.
