Excellent Thickening Agent

Pure starches, like this corn starch, have greater thickening power ounce for ounce than flour. 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.

Easy to Use

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. However, corn starch does clump when added to hot liquids or mixtures, and should therefore be added in small quantities.

Won't Alter Taste

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.


Since it's gluten-free, Argo corn starch is a health-conscious alternative to glutinous starches used in baking and cooking.

    I use cornstarch to make my own compotes and glazes for my Asian food recipes. It’s a great thickening agent that works fast and doesn’t alter the taste of my food.

    This sixteen ounce box of Argo Corn Starch is exactly as described and I have no complaints. Good size but hope for larger sizes in the future. It would be nice to order this in bulk options. The shipping was faster than expected but the larger box it was delivered in was slightly damaged.

    It's a one pound box of cornstarch...I don't think there's much quality range with cornstarch. It works the way cornstarch should...I used it to stabilized and thicken a custard. Good price.

    Making a stabilized custard

    A great price for a big box of corn starch. We use this for gravies, sauces and breading fried foods. It's also great to add to cookies to make them chewy.

    This cornstarch company is well known and I know why I love the box it comes in. Also it is great for thicking up liquids.

    I love using this cornstarch as a stabilizer for my cheesecakes. It's even fun to play with for sensory activities with children when you mix it with water.

    great for thickening sauces and for baking

    This is a good size of corn starch! This box is mostly used for cooking or baking especially for those thicker gravies. I like to mix water with it and make kids projects out of it. This corn starch works great.

    Corn starch is useful in cleaning and cooking. It is especially handy to have in gluten free baking as it acts as a binding agent instead of gluten. These are convenient size and work well.

    makes great gluten free macaroons! for gluten free cooking a strong good starch is a must

    This is standard corn starch, nothing different that what you could get at the store, but the price is much better and so convenient to have it shipped to your door.

    this cornstarch is so great! it works wonders in sauces to thicken, or as coating for chicken that is getting fried, it crisps up really nice

    I keep this stocked always in my pantry. I use it a lot for rolling out fondant (to prevent it from sticking) to making my different types of food for my family.

    Argo Corn Starch is my preferred brand for thickening my pie filling and sauces. It is a great gluten free option. My mini blueberry pies set perfectly when I use this brand!

    Was so pleased to find this! I have been buying corn starch from the grocery store and didn't even realize how much i was losing by not buying in bulk. Would recommend this to anyone who uses corn starch on a regular basis in there cooking.

    from Quaintrelle LLC Posted on

    Nice light cornstarch as it should be. It's cheaper than any one you will find in the store. It's a nice addition to recipes that call for it.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    What can I say about corn starch? It is the same stuff sold in stores but in a different package. I actually empty it out and put it into a resealable container because it can get clumpy otherwise.

    I use this cornstarch multiple times a week for rolling out my fondant and gumpaste for my cakes. It doesn't get sticky like powdered sugar does, and works perfectly for my needs.

    from Jennie's Cake Creations Posted on

    I use corn starch as a thickening agent and to make cake flour from scratch. It's great to have on hand in the kitchen to help thicken up marinades.
