Organic Corn starch is a light powdery flour great for thickening.

Our organic corn starch is produced by removing the protein and fibre of the corn kernel. The remaining part of the kernel is called the endosperm and this is then processed into corn starch. If you ever wanted to know how corn starch thickens, here you go…… As the corn starch is hydrated and heated the starch granules swell and soften. Eventually, the granules burst and amylopectin leaches out into the surrounding water, and the mixture thickens!

Corn starch is perfect for thickening sauces without adding wheat flour to your meal.  Shop bought gravies and sauces are full of unhealthy ingredients, flavour enhancers and gluten containing flours.   Our organic corn starch is a great staple to have in the cupboard and makes a perfect base for gravy on your Sunday roast.

If you like being creative and avoiding chemicals on your skin then check out our family tips for ways to make your own deodorant and blusher using corn starch!

Because it has thickening and binding properties corn starch can be used in the place of eggs in vegan cooking.  It can also be used in breads, cakes and pancakes for a gluten free alternative to traditional wheat based flours .  Corn starch works well combined with other flours such as tigernut flouralmond flour or buckwheat flour.

Our organic corn starch is completely free of GMO corn and is not irradiated so makes a healthy alternative to non-organic corn starch.  If you want to learn more about choosing organic read our blog on why organic is better.
