We have found that the fineness of the Nutrisis thickener to be superior than the granulated textures of other thickeners at thickening quicker and with less product. (Bonus on the cost/yield front).
Alister Sutherland, Catering Officer at Hampshire Care
There is very minimal leeching from any product that has been thickened and has sat plated for any length of time. Also with regeneration there has been very minimal consistency change in the thickened product.
Alister Sutherland, Catering Officer at Hampshire Care
We also found that with other thickeners that we have used, hot food would thicken quite easily but we could use up to twice as much when trying to thicken cold foods. This was not the case with Nutrisis. We found it performed equally well with both hot and cold foods using approximately the same amount of thickener for each.
Alister Sutherland, Catering Officer at Hampshire Care
We have found that the thickener incorporates itself easily in to any product that we have needed to use it on and does not clump together into small raw thickener balls (for want of a better word). Something that does happen at times with other thickeners.
