So, what is fecule de mais?

Fecule de mais, also known as cornstarch, is a fine white powder made from the starchy endosperm of corn kernels. It is commonly used as a thickening agent in soups, sauces, and gravies due to its ability to absorb and hold onto moisture. Fecule de mais is gluten-free and can be used as a substitute for wheat flour in recipes, making it a popular ingredient for those with gluten sensitivities. It can also be used as a coating for fried foods or as a binder for meatballs and burgers. Additionally, it is often used in baking as it helps to lighten the texture of cakes and other baked goods.
