Xantana (Espesantes) by Texturas (600g)


Out of stock


Xantana is a new product that will add substance to your dish. For years, starches and flour have been relied upon for thickening agents, but the disadvantage is that a large quantity has to be added, which ultimately affects the final taste. This Xantana comes from Albert and Ferrán Andrià – highly praised creative chefs of the world-renowned El Bulli restaurant in Catalonia, Spain. The Andriàs have created this amazing Xantana, which offers a natural way to thicken kitchen preparations without distorting the characteristics of the initial taste and flavor, while only requiring a minimum amount.

Suggestions: Perfect for thickening sauces, creams, juices, and soups without affecting their flavor. Mix with a great stock.
