So, what is corn-starch?

Corn-starch is a fine, powdery ingredient that is derived from the endosperm of corn kernels. This versatile ingredient has a neutral flavor and is often used as a thickener in soups, sauces, and gravies. It is also a common ingredient in baked goods, such as cakes and cookies, to help create a soft, tender texture. Corn-starch is gluten-free, making it a popular choice for those with gluten sensitivities or allergies. It is easily digestible and can be used as a substitute for wheat flour in many recipes. Corn-starch is a pantry staple that adds texture and thickness to a wide range of dishes.
