Cornaby's Ultra Gel - 1 lb
Ultra Gel is a gluten free, non-GMO cornstarch that can be directly added to any liquid, hot or cold, for instant thickness. Ultra Gel holds up to freezing, canning and refrigerating without weeping, thinning, or breaking down. Ultra Gel is resistant to lumping and adds no color or flavor of its own. It also has a companion cookbook.
Ultra Gel vs Thick Gel: While Ultra Gel and Thick Gel are similar in nature, indeed they are made from the same variety of waxy maize corn, there is one major difference. Ultra Gel is an instant thickener. This means it can be instantly whisked in to hot or cold liquids and will thicken immediately. Thick Gel is similar to a conventional corn starch. It must be mixed in a slurry and then brought to a boil to thicken. With Ultra Gel you have more convenience, but with Thick Gel you use half as much and still get the same amazing keeping qualities. We suggest having both on hand, but Ultra Gel is the faster kitchen go-to and Thick Gel our canning genius.
Ultra Gel Conversion Ratio
Ultra Gel replaces cornstarch, flour and tapioca in all thickening applications:
1 T. cornstarch = 2 T. Ultra Gel 2 T. flour or tapioca = 2 T. Ultra Gel
Directions for use: Add Ultra Gel gradually to hot or cold liquids, stirring until smooth. Allow to stand for 10 minutes for maximum thickness. Bottle, refrigerate or freeze finished products for future use.
