So, what is waxy cornstarch?

Waxy cornstarch is a type of cornstarch that has a higher amylopectin content than regular cornstarch. This makes it ideal for use in products that require a thick, creamy texture, such as puddings, pie fillings, and gravies. Waxy cornstarch is also popular in the food industry for its ability to withstand high temperatures and resist breakdown during processing. Additionally, it is a popular choice for gluten-free recipes as it can provide a similar texture to wheat flour. With its unique properties and versatility, waxy cornstarch is a valuable ingredient for any cook or food manufacturer.
