@DiggingDogFarm Other than the ability to thicken cold liquids, what advantages do you see to hydrocolloids over starch or Wondra (my two main thickeners).?
In my case, the carbohydrate content.
I usually, but not always, follow a low-carb/high fat diet.
Another advantage is that some of them keep preparations clear, or relatively clear—when that's desired—rather than cloudy or opaque.
