Corn-free Support
0

4 posts in this topic

I know there are more than a couple of us that are trying to avoid corn. I thought this might be a nice place to post brand names of safe foods and such.

I'll start: supposedly, Horizon organic cottage cheese is corn-free. I bought some to try.

And my first question - is arrowroot starch a pretty good sub for cornstarch in recipes?

Yes, arrowroot starch works well. In fact, my experience is that it thickens more than cornstarch, so less is needed. Tapioca can also be used in some cases, though the consistency is somewhat different. Guar gum might work too, but be certain to test the amount first, as it does have quite a good thickening capability.

I've been using potato starch 1:1 with good results. And almond meal for cornmeal, if you come up against that. =)

Thanks everyone! I mourn the loss of tortilla chips and corn tortillas, but other than that, most of the stuff I eat is corn-free or easily adjustible to be corn-free anyway.

What about sorghum flour? I really liked the things it did to bread. Any good sub for that?

Thanks!
