Do I use the same amount of ThickenUp Clear powder to thicken liquids as I would my current starch-based thickener?
Compared to most current starch-based thickeners, a smaller amount of Thicken Up® Clear powder is required to thicken the same amount of fluid to the same consistency. Please refer to the preparation charts.

When preparing a thickened beverage with ThickenUp Clear, does it make a difference to the end product if the thickener or the fluid is added first to the glass?
Yes, for best results it is recommended that the powder be added to the liquid.  In other words, place the liquid in the glass or container first, then add the powder.

Sometimes when I thicken water with ThickenUp Clear it appears somewhat cloudy. Why does this happen and are there any tips to improve the clarity of the water?
ThickenUp Clear will occasionally trap air bubbles within the water and hold them dispersed throughout the thickened liquid. This can produce a cloudy appearance. Water with less “air” tends to produce a more clear appearance. The following are suggestions to help improve the clarity of water thickened with ThickenUp Clear:

  • Bottled water: shake the bottle well, open and let stand to allow the “air” to escape then thicken as per guidelines
  • Tap water: For best results, collect tap water and let it stand for a period of time before thickening. Boiled water that has cooled and is then thickened provides the best clarity
  • If you are making thickened water in advance, you may use tap water – experience has shown that while it may be cloudy initially, after overnight refrigeration, the thickened water becomes significantly clearer.

Why does milk require a longer thickening time?
Fluids with a higher protein content typically take longer to thicken. It is suggested that milk stand for at least 15 minutes to achieve the desired consistency.

Does reheating of fluids thickened with ThickenUp Clear change the consistency of the product?
Heating beverages prepared with ThickenUp® Clear may cause them to appear thinner but the overall consistency should remain within the desired consistency range. Beverages thickened with ThickenUp® Clear should be reheated only until desired temperature is achieved; do not exceed 180°F and DO NOT BOIL. Thorough stirring is recommended to achieve the best consistency and to prevent hot-spots. Hot beverages should always be checked prior to consuming to minimize the risk of burns.

Can I thicken coffee with milk?  How do I do that?
Yes, you can thicken coffee with milk added to it. For the best results, make sure the milk is added to the coffee prior to thickening.

How do I thicken supplements?  It seems to take longer to thicken supplements.
The time needed to thicken oral supplements may be longer than other beverages.  Allow at least 15 minutes for milk and oral nutrition supplements.

Can pureed food prepared with ThickenUp Clear be frozen, thawed, re-heated and served?
Yes, food prepared with ThickenUp® Clear can be frozen, thawed, re-heated and served safely

Can ThickenUp Clear be added to hot and cold liquids?
Yes, it can be used in both hot and cold liquids.

Is ThickenUp Clear Gluten-Free?

Is ThickenUp Clear Lactose-Free?
Yes, but it is not for individuals with galactosemia.

Is ThickenUp Clear Kosher Dairy or Kosher?
ThickenUp Clear is Kosher certified – “Parve”. “Parve" means not containing milk or meat. ThickenUp Clear does not have Kosher Dairy designation as there is no dairy in the product.
