CLEARJEL is a modified waxy maize food starch with application in canned foods, bakery products and specialty items.

Features and Benefits:

Cooked aqueous preparations of CLEARJEL are smooth, short-textured, heavy-bodied, and do not set to a gel upon cooling. The viscosity characteristics of this starch are not greatly affected by variations in pH. CLEARJEL is resistant to break-down under high temperature and low pH conditions. This product is bland with essentially no cereal or starch taste. In retorted foods, it provides high viscosity, good clarity, and excellent sheen.

CLEARJEL contributes to the shelf life stability of canned foods. Canned products retain a smooth texture and show no liquid separation upon storage.


A major application for CLEARJEL is in bakery products, particularly fruit pie fillings where the starch offers smooth, short, stable texture and resistance to boil out during baking. Canned foods are another major application. These include cream style corn, pork and beans, canned soups, sauces and gravies and canned dinner products.

CLEARJEL is also recommended for other important food applications where a thickener with a smooth short texture is desired.

CLEARJEL is not recommended for frozen food applications.

Physical Properties:

Color: White to off-white
Form: Powder
Moisture: Approximately 11%
pH: Approximately 6

Regular Clearjel® was developed for the commercial food industry to withstand the heat necessary to process products such as canned pie filling.  Clearjel has been used by food processors for 30 years or more.

Regular Clearjel requires heating to produce the thickening process.  Maximum thickness is reached upon cooling and it resists weeping during storage.

Regular Clearjel is the only thickener the USDA recommends for use in home-canning of fruit pie fillings. It does not break down and become thin when used in home-canned pie fillings.  Instant Clearjel is not recommended in home canning since it tends to break down during processing.

Manufacturer recommends Clearjel as an equal replacement for cornstarch in uncanned pie fillings baked at home. 

Clearjel® is often spelled a variety of ways like Clear jel, Clear gel, or Cleargel and all  refer to the same product.
