So, what is ou maïs?

Ou Maïs, also known as Waxy Corn, is a type of corn that is primarily grown in China, Korea, and Japan. This variety of corn is distinct due to its waxy appearance and texture, making it an ideal ingredient for various culinary uses. Ou Maïs has a slightly sweeter taste than regular corn and contains more starch, making it perfect for creating delicious and chewy snacks such as mochi and cornstarch noodles. Additionally, Ou Maïs is also used in the production of certain types of ethanol and industrial starch, making it a versatile ingredient with a range of applications.
