So, what is tärkkelys?

Tärkkelys is a Finnish word that translates to "starch" in English. It is a vital food ingredient that is commonly used in cooking and baking to thicken sauces, gravies, and soups. Tärkkelys is derived from various sources, including corn, wheat, rice, and potatoes. It is a fine, white powder that has no taste or aroma, making it an ideal ingredient for a wide range of recipes. When heated with water, tärkkelys forms a gel that binds ingredients together and gives a smooth, silky texture. With its versatility and effectiveness, tärkkelys has become an essential ingredient in many kitchens around the world.
