best carb free thickener ever
I use this to thicken fruit juices, gravies, stir-fry and any kind of sauce that is too thin. it thickens hot or cold. It adds no calories or carbs and has no flavor of its own. I don't know how anyone that tries to live a starch free life could get by without it. It takes so little to do it's thing that it ends up being very inexpensive. I just keep it in a fine shaker and sprinkle it on, which keeps it from clumping while you stir it in.

Great Health Benefit
I have found this a wonderful product to benefit health and weight loss. The Konjac root has so many applications and I have no problem giving it a full 10/10 score. May you all be blessed by using it.

Very good product.
I really like this product. I learned about it from the book Trim Healthy Mama and have used it in alot of there recipes and it is amazing. And the best part is you don't need to us alot of it.

This stuff thickens pretty good. And its so good for you. Its a big bottle and will last me a while. I use it for cooking. Its a good price for the amount you get. I'm glad I found it here.

Love this product. Needed a low-carb thickener and this does a good job but may take quite a bit of whisking (or use a blender). A little goes a long way. Hot liquids thicken quicker than cold. May continue to thicken some as it sets.

Glucomannan for Weight Loss
I have been using glucomannan for about a year now. It works as a great thickener for things like puddings and smoothies and even soups and gravies. It also does a great job of filling you up. I add just a tiny bit to drinks too, to make them feel creamy. This has been a great weight loss tool for me.

Wow--really thickens things quickly!
I was skeptical at first at how well just a little would thicken my smoothies. It does a really great job!

Great Thickening Agent!
Used this in smoothies and to make gravy. Works well for both. Gravy is translucent in the same way gravy made with corn starch is--rather than opaque like when made with flour.

Good product, I can't use
I gave part of this to a friend, works great for her. I have IBS, seems to irritate my colon, so I can't use it.

I use this product as a grain free thickener and have been very pleased with it so far. Also works great for blender puddings and smoothies!

great thickener but can get chunky
I bought this on the recommendation of a book. It thickens great but a little goes a long way and if you end up using to much it turns whatever you are thickening into pudding. I have not found a way to reverse that, adding more liquid doesn't help. So use a little, stir and wait and then wait some more before thinking about adding more.

My New Best Friend In The Kitchen
I love this product! This white powder (konjca powder) looks like corn starch, but becomes a soluble fiber when used in making smoothies, gravies, puddings, or anything you would use flour or corn starch to thicken. It has zero calories, no flavor, no carbs, and blends into so many recipes. The joy of this product is that it does not need to be heated to thicken liquids, but does an excellent job when making gravies. A little bit goes a long way. This product has been a blessing when making dishes for family members who are either gluten intolerant or need to follow a low-glycemic diet. I wouldn't be without it.

A+ no carb sub for cornstarch & flour thickeners
I learned about this amazing no carb thickener in the book Trim Healthy Mama. It works both in hot gravies and in cold smoothies. It is like MAGIC and substitutes for many items in your cabinet without the GMO's, carbs and calories. I can't recommend highly enough. I make all my Oriental sauces, gravies, smoothies, milkshakes, puddings and mousse's with it now! And you only use a "smidge" so it last a long time and is more economical that you realize!

Glucomannan is a terrific thickener. I make gravies, puddings, and thicken shakes with it. I love that I don't need to use flour or corn starch anymore.
