Corn Starch 16 oz. Box
- 100% pure corn starch
|Package Size||16 Ounces|
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.
Sold in a 16 oz. box.

A needed pantry item for making sauces and gravies. Nice price here for a quality item. Webstaurantstore helps me keep stocked up on essentials for home at a great price and with super quick shipping!

This is a convenient box for refilling my smaller container.. Love the argo brand and this is a great value. Also easy to store in the freezer for freshness.

The best corn starch in the business is hands down Argo. I like that this case comes in individual boxes which allows me to only open what I need.

Great for making perfect gravy! Helps make a smooth gravy without an over powered taste of flour. Great price will definitely buy many more boxes of this and keep on stock.

We used the Argo Corn Starch in all eight hundred cupcakes we made for our most recent event. It worked really well, when i saw the price for a 1 lb box I couldnt believe it! It is no doubt the best price i have seen anywhere!

Webstaurant Store comes through again! Where else are you going to find name brand corn starch at such a great price? You need this on hand for thickening sauces and stews, and this is a good brand to use.

With this corn starch my muffins have been getting much better than they did with other brands. I am looking forward to buying these again.

Can't beat this price, I've searched everywhere and this is the best deal I have found for corn starch. However, I'm taking away a star because one of the packages had a hole which not only got starch in everything else I ordered but I'll have to throw out for fear of contamination or tampering.

Thanks for your review! We are sorry that one of the packages had a hole in it. Unfortunately, that can happen during the shipping process. We have credited your account for the damaged product.

Corn starch is a very good thickening agent. This is very important for Chinese cooking as a lot of their soy-based marinades and sauces depend on this thickening agent

Argo is the real deal. Grandmas everywhere have trusted gravies and puddings to the quality found in that little yellow box for years. It's my first choice too.

High quality corn starch. Great for quick fixes. Thicken soups and sauces in no time. Great price and easy to store on a dry goods rack!

This is the great corn starch that I use for my baking and cooking needs. I use it frequently with the stuff that I bake as well as to thicken the sauces and to make the soups more creamier.
Alexander G. Posted on 05/16/2011
Very high quality cornstarch. My one complaint with this product is that it came a little messy. There was a little starch over everything else in the box but nothing a warm, damp rag cant fix!
