So, what is und weizenstärke?

"Und Weizenstärke" is a German term that translates to "and wheat starch" in English. This versatile ingredient is derived from wheat and has a fine, powdery texture similar to cornstarch. It's commonly used as a thickening agent in sauces, soups, and gravies, as well as in baking to improve the texture of cakes, cookies, and other baked goods. Wheat starch is also a gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat flour, making it an excellent option for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Its neutral flavor ensures that it won't alter the taste of your dishes, making it a reliable ingredient for all kinds of recipes.
