So, what is amidon de maï$?

Amidon de maïs is the French term for cornstarch, a fine, powdery substance made from the endosperm of corn kernels. This ingredient is a popular thickener in cooking and baking due to its ability to absorb and hold moisture, resulting in a smooth, thick consistency. It is often used as a substitute for flour in gluten-free recipes and is an essential ingredient in making sauces, gravies, custards, and puddings. Cornstarch is also used in the manufacturing of paper, textiles, and cosmetics due to its thickening and binding properties. It is a versatile ingredient with a neutral taste that does not alter the flavor of the dish.
