Get to Know E-Z Gel
What is E-Z Gel?
E-Z Gel™ is a gluten-free, Non-GMO, instant cornstarch that can be added directly to any liquid – hot or cold – for immediate thickening. It can be used in baked applications to keep breads and cookies soft, to add body to low calorie sauces and salad dressings, or to thicken soups and gravies. Products made with E-Z Gel can be refrigerated, canned, or frozen without weeping, thinning, or breaking down. E-Z Gel whisks into food without lumping and adds no flavor of its own.
