This product is magic in so many ways! There are so many benefits to your general health apart from it being a superior thickener for sauces or your cooking! It's great for your digestion and combines beautifully with umeboshi plum paste or plum vinegar! It is my first go-to if I am feeling a bit low in energy! I usually dissolve about 1 teas of kuzu in similar amount of cold water and then add boiling water, until the water becomes clearer! The other option is to dissolve the kuzu in cold water and cook until the water changes from cloudy to clear! I suggest doing a google search on this product as its benefits are too numerous to list here! I love the quality of this kuzu root starch. I usually have a kuzu drink every day plus use it in my cooking!
Best product for soy-free tofu (its appearance resembles with tofu) - GOMA TOFU (sesame tofu): mix tahina with water+tamari + kuzu root starch and warm it to the boiling point, pour into small container lined with film and let it cool, serve with the ginger and drops of tamari-soy sauce. So yummy, mi-mi-mi.
Also excellent for summer-style traditional Japanese sweets "warabi-mochi" and vegan crema catalana or vanilla puding.
I love Kudzu pudding. and kudzu powder is so expansive in Israel. Here it's available to me in an affordable price so I can enjoy it even more. for me, the benefits of it for me is a calming one. for the mood, digestive and sleep. will defiantly buy again and again :)
