WTF Fluids Gels: Go With The Flow

Fluid gels are weak gels that stay solid until you’re ready to dig in. It’s a bit of technical wizardry that packs on the “wow how did you do that?” factor while remaining surprisingly simple.

    Just got bag of Tapioca maltodextrin. Didn’t know it had carbs I’m a diabetic I’m assuming it’s bad carbs but not sure. Also no directions on the package it came in how much should you put in oil?

    My name ís Kopelman, Jayme, a Brazilian customer. I understand most of your customers are Americans, but not all of them, which is my case. I find it difficult to follow your videos because you folks speak too quickly. Maybe you could speak a little bit more slowly. Thanks
