According to the manufacturer
"National Starch recommends Ultra-Tex 3 where a very smooth and creamy, glossy texture is required. Ultra-Sperse 3 offers the same textural and taste benefits, combined with the additional benefit of exceptionally easy dispersion for instant applications without lumping."
Tell us how it works out

I tried Ultra Tex 3 and it did not work particularly well. Was very nice at low temperature, but when I heated to higher temperature for service, sauce thinned dramatically. Also (unrelated to thickeners), the recipe calls for way too much sage, IMO. Sage overwhelmed the sauce.
National Starch Company sent a free sample of Ultra-Sperse, and I look forward to trying that. Terra Spice also sells Ultra-Sperse, fyi.
