So, what is vehnätärkkelys?

Vehnätärkkelys is a Finnish word that refers to wheat starch, a fine white powder that is extracted from wheat flour. It is a versatile ingredient commonly used in food manufacturing and cooking as a thickener, stabilizer, and binder. Due to its neutral taste and high viscosity, it is an excellent choice for creating smooth and creamy textures in sauces, gravies, soups, and custards. Vehnätärkkelys is also a gluten-free alternative to cornstarch and is a popular ingredient in gluten-free baking. Its ability to withstand high temperatures makes it ideal for creating crispy coatings on fried foods.
