Ultra Tex 8 Powder melts quickly and thickens ingredients without the use of heat, retaining the color and flavor of liquids.
It is a tasteless, high performance, cold water-swelling white powder derived from tapioca starch.
In modernist cooking, thickened liquids can then be dried into thin, crisp, transparent sheets. Ultra Tex 8 Powder is excellent for use with acidic liquids, and creates dried sheets of incomparable fineness and crispness.
Properties : Modified tapioca starch.
Use: Cold texturizing and thickening agent. Add liquid and whisk.
Remarks: You can also dry the mixes to make thin and crunchy sheets.
Elaboration: All kinds of sauces, purées, toppings and pastry elaborations. Cold cream of fruits or vegetables, hot cream (all preparations such as lemon cream etc...).
When cold, it has all the properties of a cooked starch and does not change the flavor.
