So, what is fécule de blé?

Fécule de blé, also known as wheat starch, is a fine white powder extracted from wheat flour through a process of washing, separating, and drying. It is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and binder in various food applications, including baked goods, sauces, and soups. With a neutral flavor and high amylose content, wheat starch provides excellent texture and mouthfeel, making it an essential ingredient in gluten-free products. It is also a rich source of carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals, making it a nutritious addition to any diet. Its versatility and functional properties make it a popular choice for food manufacturers and home cooks alike.
