Japanese Kuzu Starch Thickener

also known as Kudzu is a superior quality starch thickener with a smooth texture and neutral flavour that is naturally extracted from the roots of one of Japan’s most vigorous mountain plants.

Clearspring's kuzu producer has been making kuzu for five generations, and still carefully follows the traditional 120-day process of washing, settling, filtering and drying the pure organic kuzu root starch that it supplies to Clearspring.

Located in southern Kyushu, where the volcanic soils produce exceptionally vigorous kuzu plants, they are one of the few remaining producers of pure kuzu starch in Japan.

Kuzu has been a valued ingredient in Japanese cuisine and confectionery for more than two thousand years.

Its high content of complex starch molecules makes it a powerful thickening agent.

While standard thickeners like cornflour can do much the same job, they tend to be highly processed and treated with chemical bleaches and extracting agents, whereas Clearspring pure organic kuzu is a completely natural gluten-free starch.
