What is cornstarch?

Cornstarch is starch made from maize or corn. Corns are the most consumed cereal grain and is considered the largest crop in United States in terms of value and volume. Cornstarch is a carbohydrate extracted from the endosperms of the corn kernel.

What are the uses of Cornstarch?

Cornstarch is known for its thickening properties and one of the reasons why it is mainly used for cooking sauces and soups. It is also used as a thickening agent in batter and breading to produce crispy coating for fried foods.

Cornstarch, being one of the main ingredients in baking, helps prevent pastry products to be watery and achieve a runny texture. It is also useful as an anti - caking agent and helps absorbs moisture to prevent condensation.

What are the benefits of using cornstarch?

Aside from being a great thickening agent to achieve a person’s desired texture, cornstarch is beneficial for those with celiac disease or people with gluten intolerance. This makes cornstarch a good wheat flour substitute when a recipe needs it. As it is gluten-free, it can cater wider range of recipes possible.

Cornstarch can also be beneficial to those people who need higher calorie intake. Some studies also suggest that can help prevent diabetes-related foot infections as well as some skin conditions like Pruritus.

    "I did a test for a new brownie recipe last weekend and tried KESSLER'S™ Alkalized Cocoa Powder. Just when I thought my brownies couldn’t get any fudgier and more chocolate-y, this cocoa powder kicked it up a notch and made it even more decadent! I also noticed it resulted in a darker brown colour and much deeper cocoa flavor. I added 70% dark chocolate chunks and it was the perfect combination."

    “I find KESSLER’S Alkalized Cocoa powder to possess both qualities of taste and color. I love that my Dulce de Leche Chocolate Cake and Double Chocolate Chip Cupcake bake to a deep chocolate brown shade, and each bite gives you that mellow smooth yet rich chocolate taste. Matched with a good cocoa aroma, I’ve found the perfect combination of color and chocolate intensity in KESSLER’S Alkalized Cocoa powder.”

    “KESSLER’S Cocoa Powder gives me an intense flavour of good quality cocoa. In making my chocolate icing, the taste is very good. It’s texture is a bit smoother than others, so it would also be perfect for puddings and glazes. It’s softer and runnier than some I have tested that’s why I suggest using it when one requires a runnier but smooth glaze.”

    “Kessler's® Alkalized Cocoa Powder is very robust with a deep brown color. The taste and color it imparts in baked items is rich and full-bodied. It may be a new player in the field, but it clearly deserves its own place.”
