Bob's Red Mill Cornstarch is a dense powder obtained from the endosperm portion of corn. It is commonly used as a thickener for sauces, puddings, and such. It tends to form lumps so it is usually mixed with a small amount of liquid to make a paste before using it. Cornstarch is also used in Oriental breading mixtures.
Their dense and powdery cornstarch comes right from the endosperm of the corn kernel. Cornstarch is a terrific ingredient for thickening puddings, pie fillings, sauces, soups and stews. It's also widely used in many cake and cookie recipes to produce finely textured baked goods. Cornstarch is often included in shortbread recipes, where it helps contribute a crumbly and tender texture in the finished product.
