Kuzu has been valued through the ages in Japan as a health food and an ideal thickener, which is soothing and easy to digest.  Extracted from the roots of the Kuzu plant (Pueraia Iobata) from the mountains of Japan, it is highly versatile and dissolves quickly in any cold liquid.

Kuzu has a neutral taste, is very low in calories, gluten-free and contains no fat.

Kuzu can produce sparkling and glossy sauces and soups and a smooth texture to a wide variety of foods. 

It can also be used to balance the acidity of sweets and is often used in icing.

  • Thickened liquids can be dried to produce glass-like crisps.
  • Kuzu crisps can be deep fried to puff like "prawn crackers"
  • Dust on vegetables or fish prior to frying to provide a light, crispy coating
  • Add to fresh fruit and juice over a low heat for a healthier alternative syrup

Simply add to thin liquids and bring to the boil. The liquid will thicken and become glossy.

A half to one tablespoon of Kuzu will thicken one cup of liquid.
