What is a Thickening Agent and How to Use it
Using a thickening agent can instantly add a creamy and flavorful texture to any savory or sweet recipe. Here’s a helpful guide to understanding the process of how cooking starches and gums to a gel-like consistency helps to thicken sauces, stews, and fillings.
Plants naturally contain starches as an energy source, which can be extracted and used for adding thickness to food. Starch gelatinization is vital for developing thicker sauces as the properties of the ingredients change when heated.
There are many types of thickening agents to choose from. Examples of plants that contain starches for cooking applications include; corn, rice, wheat, barley, spelt, oat, beans, peas, potatoes, tapioca, arrowroot, green bananas, plantains, gums, and pectin.
