Description

Description

Cornstarch is a fine, silken powder milled from the dried seed cobs of corn. It can be used for culinary and cosmetic purposes, particularly as a thickener. It absorbs excess of oil more than any other flours and lends a silky feel on the skin.

Cornstarch is really close to cornflour but they are not exactly the same. Starch originates from the inside of corn seeds and is more thickening than the flour, which is made out of the entire seed.

There are five varieties of corn: dent, flint, flour, popcorn and sweet corn. It is an annual grass and tolerates most climates very well. It is now grown in most parts of the world.

The plant itself has a long stem, growing up to five feet and flowering in early summer. The cobs are harvested immature or ripe for culinary use, but always ripe for use as cereals, flour, oil or syrup.
