So, what is corn starches?

Corn starches are a commonly used food ingredient derived from the endosperm of corn kernels. They are a fine white powder that is used as a thickening agent in soups, sauces, gravies, and other dishes. Corn starches are also used in baking as a substitute for flour, as they provide a lighter texture to baked goods. They are gluten-free and can be used to thicken liquids without altering their taste or color. Corn starches have a neutral flavor and are easy to dissolve, making them a versatile ingredient for many culinary applications. With their ability to create a smooth texture and their wide range of uses, corn starches are a staple in many kitchens and food processing facilities.
