Clearspring Organic Kuzu
Clearspring Organic Kuzu (also known as Kudzu) is a superior quality starch thickener with a smooth texture and neutral flavour that is naturally extracted from the roots of one of Japan’s most vigorous mountain plants. Its quality was commended in the 2012 Free From Awards.
How To use:
Ideal thickener for soups and stews, sweet and savoury sauces, glazes and pie fillings, it is easy to use:
- Crush the chunks
- Dissolve in a small amount of cold water
- Add the mix to to your cooking liquid
- Heat, stirring 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.
Kuzu has been a valued ingredient in Japanese cuisine and confectionery for more than two thousand years. Its high content of complex starch molecules makes it a powerful thickening agent. While standard thickeners like cornflour can do much the same job, they tend to be highly processed and treated with chemical bleaches and extracting agents, whereas Clearspring pure organic kuzu is a completely natural gluten free starch.
