So, what is maïs cireux?

Maïs cireux, also known as waxy corn, is a variety of corn with a higher content of amylopectin, a type of starch that gives it a unique waxy texture. Unlike traditional sweet corn, maïs cireux has a denser, chewier texture that makes it ideal for use in a variety of dishes, including soups, stews, and stir-fries. Its high starch content also makes it perfect for thickening sauces and gravies. Maïs cireux has a slightly sweet flavor and a pale yellow color, and it is a popular ingredient in Asian cuisine. It is often used to make cornstarch and is also used to produce biofuels and industrial products.
