So, what is άμυλο?

Άμυλο, a Greek word for starch, is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder derived from various plants such as corn, wheat, potatoes, and rice. It serves as a thickening agent in many food products like soups, sauces, and desserts. In addition to enhancing texture and consistency, starch can also add crispness to fried foods. Health-wise, consuming starch in moderation can provide a steady source of energy and promote digestive health. However, excessive consumption can lead to weight gain and other health problems. Overall, the versatility of άμυλο makes it an essential ingredient in many cuisines worldwide.
