Atkins 'Thicken Thin Not/Starch Thickener' for Gravy, Stews, etc.

I just ordered the "Atkins Thicken Thin Not" Product, so that I could have gravy with my meats, (especially Thanksgiving Day with my turkey). I hear it makes the gravy real thick and creamy, (just like flour), but with no lumps, and that it reheats well also.

They say you can thicken cold or hot liquids....whatever you want. (I imagine I could thicken my low-carb pancake syrup with it too....YUMMM).

Has anyone ever tried it? It was expensive, but you only use small amounts...so it should last me a while; and it sure will be worth every penny if I can start having gravy with my meats, and thicken stews, and syrups, etc. It's supposed to work better than Xantham and Guar Gums. Oh, and it's 0 Net Carbs! Any input from anyone?

I use this regularly. The gravy will be more like a cornstarch gravy vs. a flour gravy, but it does work well and does not get lumpy. Just whisk it in! It works well in all kids of sauces.

Patt3, I live in Avon, Minnesota. Do you buy your Thick N Thin around here? Or do you order on-line?

I ordered it through the 800 number listed on the website www.atkins.com. It's called thicken thin not...(not sure of the manufacturer or brand name), but I went through their products listed, and called the 800 number to place the order. It will take 3 business days to get it. Can't wait. I will use it all the time for my pork roasts, and chicken/turkey gravy, for beef stew to make it thicker, etc. And won't that turkey taste good with gravy smothered on it, rather than just dry on my plate!

I guess it works great adding it to those thin syrups too......like my atkins syrup.....it will be nice to have thicker maple syrup. It was a little pricey, but you only use a couple tablespoons for a large pan of gravy; so it will be worth it to me.
