SimplyThick (you know, the gel thickener) was founded back in 2001 by John Holahan. SimplyThick was founded when a prototype was created using a liquid xanthan gum thickener. This was a ground-breaking alternative to the starch thickeners that were widely used at the time. You can read more about SimplyThick in John’s own words!
