Ultra Gel™ is a "modified food starch" made from waxy maize (corn) which can be used to thicken hot or cold foods without cooking. Starches such as Ultra Gel™ are used commercially in an incredible number of applications.


Thick Gel is a "modified food starch" which requires boiling temperatures in order to thicken. Thick Gel stays clear-colored and won't add flavor to your recipes. It has a wide range of applications since it is stable to both very hot (canning) and very cold (freezing) temperatures.


The Ultra Gel™ Answer Book contains 150 pages of tried and true recipes for salad dressings, fruit salads, dips, sauces and gravies, soups and stews, main dishes, bread, desserts, cakes and cookies, pies and puddings, jams and jellies, and home-canned specialties.


Those looking for a low-sugar jam where you can taste the fruit and not just the sugar will find Ultra Gel™ a godsend. Try replacing the pectin with Ultra Gel™ in your favorite jam or jelly recipe, and enjoy the ability to dependably create lower-sugar, higher-fruit flavor family favorites!

Carnet Foods Modified Food Starch

We all know the choices of thickeners available at the grocery store: flour, cornstarch, tapioca, and occasionally arrowroot.

In today's fast-paced world, many of us feel a need for more versatile thickeners:

  • that are easier to use,
  • thicken without cooking,
  • can be used in a wide range of favorite recipes,
  • and remain stable in a wide range of conditions.

We want to prepare meals ahead and have them retain a quality we can be proud of. We want more control over what our family eats than we can get with commercially prepared foods. And we want to be able to make our own low-calorie and low-fat products.

We have experimented with over thirty different food starches in order to ensure our selection of the ultimate instant food starches: Ultra Gel and Thick Gel!
