Corn Starch

Posted by Admin on November, 13, 2013

Corn Starch is also colloquially referred to as cornstarch, corn flour and maize in different regions and different countries around the world. The nutritious food product is obtained from the grain corn (maize) and is profusely used for condensing soups, gravies, custards and sauces. It is also used for preparing corn syrup and sugars.


Corn starch is in fact a popular thickening transmitter for foods that retain plenty of water. When heated on certain temperature, the molecular chains of the corn starch untangle; as a result, they come in direct contact with different starch chains and thus condense the liquid.
