So, what is fecola di mais?

Fecola di mais, also known as cornstarch, is a fine white powder derived from the endosperm of the corn kernel. It is commonly used as a thickening agent in soups, sauces, and gravies, as well as a binding agent in baked goods. This versatile ingredient is gluten-free and has a neutral flavor, making it a popular choice for those with dietary restrictions or for recipes where the taste of the thickener should not affect the overall flavor. Fecola di mais also has a long shelf life and can be stored in a cool, dry place for extended periods without losing its efficacy.
