Thickening agents should not be missing in your kitchen. They come in many different variants, each with its own specific properties. They are used to give liquid food products the correct thickness or to bond them together into a homogeneous mass. No other factors other than thickness are affected. The molecules of these agents ensure that those of the other products can mix with each other. Thickening agents are needed for products such as sauce, soup and desserts such as custard and pudding.
COLD AND WARM PREPARATIONS
Some thickening agents can be used in both cold and warm preparations. There is also a large group that obtain their thickening agents properties solely by heating. This applies to flour and cornstarch, for example, which must be made into a kind of paste with warm water. Gelatin also needs heat to do its job. We therefore call these variants warm thickening agents. Some products, such as eggs and cream, can realize their binding function at both high and low temperatures.
