So, what is fecula de maíz?

Fecula de maíz, also known as corn starch, is a fine white powder that is derived from the endosperm of corn kernels. It is commonly used as a thickener and binder in a wide range of food products, from soups and sauces to baked goods and desserts. This versatile ingredient is gluten-free and has a neutral flavor, making it an ideal choice for those with dietary restrictions or who want to add thickness without altering the taste of their recipes. Its ability to absorb liquid and create a smooth texture also makes it a staple in many households and professional kitchens alike.
