How to use Konjac flour?

Konjac flour finds application in the food industry as thickener for sauces, gravies, puddings and pie fillings. In bakeries, it helps to make wheat flour soft and lends a good texture.

Konjac flour is the perfect thickener for lowcarb or grain-free diets, It recreates the thick rich textures you want without adding calories, fat, or carbohydrates. It even gives you fiber, all of it the soluble fiber that is so hard to get on a restricted diet.

Konjac flour can be added to baking products such as cookies, cakes, bread, and biscuits. (one teaspoons konjac flour with two cup wheat flour when made bread)

Konjac flour thickens like cornstarch in gravies, sauces, and soups -- without the carbs -- and it's much easier to use, dissolves directly in hot or cold liquids.

Suggested uses: sauces, soups, gravies, and salad dressings.

Directions: Use Konjac flour like cornstarch. However, a teaspoon thickens much more than one teaspoon of cornstarch, and one tablespoon konjac flour more like 10 tablespoons of cornstarch.
