How to Thicken and Flavor Pureed Foods
Instead of spending hours pureeing and flavoring your own foods, try a more convenient option, Thick-It® Purees. Thick-It® Purees are convenient and versatile fully cooked comfort foods that will satisfy your taste buds and your nutritional needs. If Thick-It® Purees aren’t available, simply add Thick-It® Instant Food and Beverage Thickener or Thick-It®2 Instant Food and Beverage Thickener for safe, thickened homemade pureed foods.
Pureed Vegetables: 4 ounces of pureed carrots, green beans, wax beans, peas, tomatoes and winter squash can achieve the desired consistency with 1 tablespoon of Thick-It® Instant Food and Beverage Thickener or 2 teaspoons of Thick-It®2 Instant Food and Beverage Thickener. Flavor with your favorite seasonings to make them taste more like the comfort foods you enjoy.
Pureed Fruits: Mix 1 tablespoon of Thick-It® Instant Food and Beverage Thickener or 2 teaspoons of Thick-It®2 with 4 oz. pureed fruit like applesauce, apricots, peaches or pears for a firm consistency. To enhance the flavor, add a dash of cinnamon or allspice in combination with either 1/8 teaspoon lemon juice or ½-1 teaspoon sugar or sweetener.
Pureed Meats: The mixing of Thick-It® Instant Food and Beverage Thickener or Thick-It®2 Instant Food and Beverage Thickener with pureed beef and chicken will vary depending on the fluidity of the puree. We suggest adding 2 ½ teaspoons to 1 tablespoon of Thick-It® Instant Food and Beverage Thickener or 1 ¼ - 1 ½ teaspoons of Thick-It®2 Instant Food and Beverage Thickener to 4 oz. of beef or chicken puree. Enhance the flavor with beef, chicken or vegetable dry seasonings if desired.
