If you only use cornstarch as an occasional cooking staple, you’re missing out big time.
Cornstarch, the starch derived from corn, is made from the white endosperms found in the center of a corn kernel. These endosperms are ground into a fine, white powder that is commonly used as a thickening agent.
What Is Starch?
Starch is the most common carbohydrate in the human diet. It’s found in high quantities in wheat, corn, potatoes, and rice.
Fad diets from the last few decades have given carbohydrates a bad name, but make no mistake: People need carbs to survive.
Consuming an appropriate amount of carbs gives you energy, and is integral to keeping your central nervous system running smoothly.
