Hi guys, do any of you know a good starch free thickener for use in sauces, dressings etc? I've searched the forum and can't find anything, I'm really missing this in my cooking.

Also is anyone that avoids dairy OK with Kefir or is it just as bad as milk or yoghurt etc? I know it's full of lactose still (I can't find a lactose free Kefir anywhere near me) but I know some people drink it still. I'm trying to come up with a starch free high calorie shake to up my calorie intake a bit.

As always thanks for your help,

I asked this question about thickening sauces years ago and John the Dragon suggested adding bentonite - a clay mineral. I didn't try it. These days I save the juices from roasts and add passata which at least makes a rich gravy.

'Then you should say what you mean,' the March Hare went on. 'I do,' Alice hastily replied; 'at least - at least I mean what I say - that's the same thing , you know.' 'Not the same thing a bit!' said the Hatter.

My kefir is all Lactose free. Even buy it at albertsons.

No families take so little medicine as those of doctors, except those of apothecaries.
