Great in smoothies!

Posted by Reviewer2122840 on Jul 25, 2011

I bought this for using in smoothies, "protein ice cream" (google that and you'll find recipes!) and other icy things. This makes it very smooth and creamy. A word of caution, though: too much might upset your stomach if you're sensitive like I am. My only other complaint is that I wish it had come in a resealable package of some sort. Not too big of a deal and it wouldn't deter me from getting this product again, but I do hope for something to be done about it!

Unique thickener and emulsifier

Posted by RodericRinehart on Nov 07, 2011

Use a *tiny* amount for big results in many products! Works in baked goods, ice cream, salad dressings, and barbecue sauces.

Posted by Reviewer3312249 on May 14, 2011

I must be allergic to this, because my belly was so distended and I was sick for hours after putty this in a smoothy. Plus, it was gross - it turned fruit juice into a giant glob!!
