So, what is amidon du maïs?

Amidon du maïs, also known as corn starch, is a fine, powdery substance derived from the endosperm of the corn kernel. It is a versatile ingredient used in a variety of culinary applications, from thickening sauces and soups to creating crispy coatings for fried foods. The pure white color of corn starch makes it an ideal choice for recipes where a clear or light-colored final product is desired. It is a gluten-free alternative to flour and is often used as a thickener in gluten-free recipes. Corn starch is a pantry staple in many kitchens due to its versatility and long shelf life.
