Making pureed fruits and vegetables is a challenge. The juices and pulp often separate, resulting in a mixed texture that's unsafe for people with difficulty swallowing.For easier swallowing, add the Cold Mousse Base powder to blended fruits and vegetables. It binds the mixture to create a uniformly textured mousse. You can also use it to thicken up blended food and present them in different shapes so as to make your dishes look more appealing.

1. Will my food thin down over time?
No. Cold Mousse Base is very stable and it is not affected by your saliva. Therefore, it will not thin down over time.
2. How do I store Cold Mousse Base once the packet has been opened?
Cold Mousse Base comes with a ziplock closure. Store it in a cool, dry place for freshness. If your home tends to be very warm, you can store it in the fridge.
3. Can I heat the thickened product?
It is not advisable to heat the thickened product because it will become harder when it cools down again. Please enjoy your food immediately after cooking.
4. What equipment do I have to use when adding Cold Mousse Base thickener?
We recommend using electric mixers and blenders. Hand mixers might incorporate the Cold Mousse base well enough for it to perform as it should. Therefore, the product might not be able to thicken your food very well.
5. The finished product does not seem to thicken well. Why is that so?
This could be due to several reasons:
- For food containing starch: Please add more water and cook at 40 ℃ or higher.
- For high moisture foods: The finished product will tend to be soft. Slowly add more Cold Mousse base, bit by bit. Do not add excessive amount at one go.
- In the case of food containing high fat/oil: The finished product will tend to be soft. Slowly add more Cold Mousse base, bit by bit. Do not add excessive amount at one go.
