Thick N Cold Powder 180gRated 4/5 based on 5 reviews.
Thick N Cold is a naturally derived product from plant sources. This product requires no heat to activate, it is pH independant and has no difficult hydration process to follow. Thick N Cold should not alter the colour or clarity of the product it is mixed with. Thick N Cold can be used to thicken liquids to a point where they can be pipped into macarons, cakes or even quinelled on a plate. All this functionality without the gummy mouthfeel traditionally ascociated with hydrocolloids.
Thick N Cold is perfect for strict dietry requiurements as it is animal free (vegetarian & Vegan), wheat and gluten free. The blended product can be heated but may have problems depending on the liquid used. This product can be used to thicken Balsamic Vinegar, vegetable purees and fruit juices. As this is a new product to the Australian Market more uses will evolve over time. The thickness acheived will increase slightly over time but not substantially. A general starting point would be to add 3grams into 100mls of liquid at maximum shear. Testing has been quite successful using a stick blender and we recommend this approach. Once an understanding of dosages and how the product reacts go wild and let us know the results.

One health application we are exploring is the use of this product to thicken foods to aid with swallowing. Traditionally this has been done by using guar gum many Speech Therapists report that patients become sick of the taste associated with guar gum in high dosages over time. As Thick N Cold has no taste and requires no heat to activate it presents as an excellent product for this application.
Some chefs have said this product is similar to the product known as Clear Jel

Impressive14 December 2017Added this on a whim to my order. Got the standard gums for my year 9 food tech class but this really intrigued me. So got it and had a play prior to the class. Well this turned out to be the winner with the kids, easy to use and thickens all kinds of stuff. Really glad I grabbed it, impressive thanks Guys Gwyn
A pantry must have!!3 December 2017I don't understand the science behind how this product works but the amount of times it has saved me when gels (and forgotten vegan guests don't have dessert) don't gel is almost unimaginable...I've started to think I subconsciously sabotage anything that requires thickening just so I can use my favourite pantry item. Like mentioned its also great when making a vegan filling when time isn't on your side, all you need is some fresh orange juice, your stick blender and Thick N Cold and you've got yourself the perfect vegan, dairy free, sugar free, gluten free curd like filling and no one will ever know you forgot to make them a dessert!

Thick Beer18 October 2016Visited the click and collect store at 508 Lygon St (on a whim) for some info on thickening beer for a whacky dessert I wanted to make. Was pleasantly surprised to discover a product existed that could make this happen! The lovely girl working helped me through the simple online purchasing system and within a few days my thick n cold was at my door step awaiting to be blitzed into my beer! Thick n Cold is magic, not only did it achieve the pipeable consistency I was after, the flavour was not affected at all, and the bubbles caused when blending with the stick blender all dissipated. Overall very happy with this product and the service I received.
Soup thickener4 July 2016I use this for thickening low carb cream of chicken soup. Mediocre results on its own, but terrific when combined with xanthan gum. After straining the stock,(about 2 litres) i put it back on the heat and whisk in about 2 teaspoons of this plus 1-2 teaspoons xanthan, then hit it with the stick blender to make sure no lumps of either. Then reduce and add the cream (500ml) then shredded chicken and re-season. Using the combination prevents the slimy mouth feel of just the xanthan gum. I would dearly love to see nutritional info on this product so I can assess the carb count of my soup!
