So, what is starch?

Starch is a vital ingredient that plays a significant role in cooking and food production. It is a type of carbohydrate found in grains like wheat, rice, corn, and potatoes. This versatile ingredient is commonly used as a thickener in sauces, soups, and gravies, and is also a key ingredient in baking, helping to create a fluffy and moist texture in bread, cakes, and pastries. Starch can be derived from various sources and is available in different forms, including cornstarch, tapioca starch, potato starch, and arrowroot starch. Its neutral flavor and ability to add texture make it a popular ingredient in many dishes, from savory to sweet.
