Cornstarch is a widely used thickening agent in the food industry. It is created by soaking maize in water with sulphur dioxide to soften it and prevent fermentation. The softened corn is crushed and the starch is separated, ground, and filtered to produce a nearly pure final product. Cornstarch is commonly used as a thickening agent in an array of culinary creations. From marinades, sauces, gravies, and glazes to an asortment of soups, caseroles, pies, and delectable deserts, it lends its prowes in enhancing both flavor and texture.
When combined with cold water, cornstarch remains insoluble, appearing granular and settling down if left undisturbed. However, when cornstarch is cooked in water, the starch granules soak up the liquid, expand, and burst, transforming into a clear, thickened mixture. This process is known as gelatinization. Gelatinization typically commences around 60?C (140?F) and culminates at the boiling point.
