A popular thickening agent of choice, corn starch is especially handy for perfecting fruity sauces or Asian dishes with a high-gloss sheen. This premium Argo corn starch is a staple ingredient in any kitchen since it can help you create a wide variety of recipes! Pure starches, like this corn starch, have greater thickening power ounce for ounce than flour. Corn starch has to be heated and cooked for a short period of time in order to lose its starchy taste. Heating it also brings out its thickening properties, making your dish just the right consistency.
A nearly flavorless thickener, Argo corn starch allows the natural taste of your foods to shine through. Many people prefer to use corn starch as a thickening agent since it dissolves clearly, and doesn't alter the color or appearance of dishes. However, corn starch does clump when added to hot liquids or mixtures, and should therefore be added in small quantities.
Argo corn starch is the perfect thickening agent for gravies, sauces, and glazes. It can also be used to thicken desserts like pies, custards, and puddings. Since it's gluten-free, Argo corn starch is a health-conscious alternative to glutinous starches used in baking and cooking.
This item is Gluten Free per the manufacturer.

I use Argo cornstarch daily when rolling out fondant and gumpaste. It keeps it from sticking, and doesn't get everything sticky like powdered sugar does.

The corn starch is all natural and is great in and out of the kitchen for many recipes and purposes. I did have to make sure that the starch didn't fall out too fast and everywhere.

I use this at home, not only is the price cheaper then retail, but it's convenient to order with the other items. Works as expected from Argo, and by ordering it here, I never run out.

Quality corn starch, convenient size, nice price. This is the same national brand sold at my local grocery store but is obviously cheaper to order from here.

Great Brand and wonderful price!! I go through a ton of corn starch and plan to purchase the argo again. Compares to other name brand corn starches.

A no brainier. Standard corn starch provided at a good price. I always add a few boxes to my orders, comes in handy in a variety of applications.

An excellent, consistent corn starch. We like that it comes in smaller, 1# packages, so we don't have more product than needed open at any time.

This is definitely a kitchen basic for me. Argo corn starch in particular is a good quality cornstarch. I use it for a thickening agent in gravies and puddings. I also use it in cake decorating to keep fondant from sticking. It is a versatile ingredient and is a great price in bulk from Webstaurant.

This is a good product. We use it in our pie baking and it is a convenient size for our use. We don't use enough to need huge bulk packing on this,product, so it works out fine for us.

I use this as a thickening agent to replace flour. As everyone that is a chef or home cook should know 1 Tbsp. of corn starch equals 2 Tbsp. of flour. Thank you for the price of this. As at my local supermarket it was about far more for the same product.

Love this product and the price is perfect! i use them for frying mostly because it gives you the crunch and crisp flour just can't. They are great for making custard and sauces to. Just remember to bring it to a full boil so that it reach it's full thickening power!

I recently found out that I have a gluten "intolerance" and have had to switch my diet. I found Webstaurantstore, through another website and I'm thrilled. My Corn Starch came to me well packaged and in a timely manner. The price was so good that I ordered 5 of them. Plus, as an additional bonus I was able to pay for my order using my online account. Doesn't get any better than that.

Just a staple people need in their kitchens. We keep this on hand when we want to make gravies with left over fried foods. The price is great and easy to store in your closet or pantry.
