So, what is άμυλο αραβοσίτου?

"Άμυλο αραβοσίτου" is a natural starch that is derived from the endosperm of corn kernels. It is a gluten-free and highly versatile ingredient that is commonly used in cooking and baking as a thickening agent, binding agent, or to add texture to food. This white, powdery substance has a neutral taste and is often used to thicken soups, sauces, and gravies, as well as to make baked goods like bread, cakes, and cookies. Due to its high viscosity and low gelatinization temperature, "άμυλο αραβοσίτου" is also widely used in the food industry to produce various processed foods, such as noodles, snack foods, and processed meats.
