Thickening larger quantities: Thick & Easy™* can be mixed into liquids using a food processor. Keep food/liquid refrigerated until ready to use. Thickening pureed food: Add the desired quantity of Thick & Easy™* and blend until a smooth consistency develops. If the texture becomes thicker than required, simply add a small amount of liquid (water, juice, milk) and re-liquidise.
