Yes, corn starch is just fine and is great for thickening things.

If you are making gravy, or thickening a soup with potatoes in it, try using potato flour. That just adds to the potato taste of gravy on mashed potatoes or potato soup :-)

Just something to note - I found that after I was gluten-free for a while, I also noticed that I was reacting to corn products. So, my problem with corn isn't gluten related, but my body definitely does not like it. I use tapioca starch and rice flour for all of my thickening needs.

Corn starch is, well, corn. That's all. But as mentioned above, some of us are sensitive to other foods besides just gluten. I don't have a problem with corn or soy, but sensitivities to these foods are not unusual.

S,

Do you mean potato flour flour, or potato starch flour? The reason I ask is 'cause I have a box of ener-g potato flour flour that I haven't even used yet. It's so dense & heavy that I've been reluctant to add it to my flour/starch blends.

best regards, lm
