So, what is corn starch & rice powder?

Corn starch and rice powder are two versatile and gluten-free ingredients commonly used in the food industry. Corn starch is a fine white powder extracted from corn kernels that thickens and stabilizes sauces, soups, and desserts. Rice powder, on the other hand, is made by grinding milled rice into a fine dust-like consistency that lends a light texture and crispiness to baked goods and coatings. Together, they make a great combination for creating crispy and crunchy textures in various dishes while also providing a neutral taste that won't overpower other flavors. These ingredients are perfect for those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease, as they offer an alternative to wheat-based thickeners and flours.
