So, what is amido di mais?

Amido di mais is the Italian name for cornstarch, a fine white powder extracted from corn kernels. It is a common thickening agent used in both sweet and savory dishes, such as sauces, soups, custards, and puddings. Cornstarch is gluten-free and has a neutral flavor, which makes it an ideal ingredient for thickening delicate sauces and creamy desserts. It is also used as a coating for fried foods and can be mixed with flour to produce a crispy texture. Cornstarch is a versatile ingredient that adds smoothness and body to a wide range of culinary creations.
