Finely ground cornmeal is sometimes referred as corn flour. Corn flour, however, is made by grinding the corn kernels into a fine powder. When baking, corn flour will produce heavier bread than wheat flour. Similar to cornmeal and corn flour, cornstarch is used to thicken sauces and soups. It’s also great for gravies, glazes, custards, and puddings. Though some may try to substitute one for the other, cornmeal, corn flour, and cornstarch each have beneficial properties depending on which dishes you are preparing.
