ULTRA-TEX® 8 is a high-performance cold wa-ter swelling modified food starch derived from tapioca. It exhibits many of the properties of a modified cook-up starch and possesses high viscosity and a very bland flavor profile with good mouth melt-away characteristics.

ULTRA-TEX® 8 provides high viscosity and a very smooth, short, and glossy texture in a range of instant food applications. It also imparts a rich creamy mouthfeel while possessing a very bland flavor profile.

This product has moderate tolerance to heating and acidic conditions. The primary advantage when using this product is the excellent textural stability it possesses, even in cold temperature or refrigerated storage conditions.

Just want to say thank you for a very speedy delivery. I placed my order for Popping Candy last week and it arrived in Switzerland this morning just in time for me to make my 'Exploding' Chocolate Dessert this weekend. Once again many thanks.

If anyone is interested in Heston style food antics, this is a cool place to get your stuff. Pretty cheap shipping and nice small amounts.
