Organic Corn Flour is a light powdery flour great for thickening.

Corn flour is perfect for thickening sauces without adding wheat flour to your meal.  Shop bought gravies and sauces are full of unhealthy ingredients, flavour enhancers and gluten containing flours.   Organic corn flour is a great staple to have in the cupboard and makes a perfect base for gravy on your Sunday roast.

Family Tip:

  1. Corn flour makes a great veggie gravy.  Simply use vegetable stock, salt, pepper and corn flour to thicken.
  2. It combines well with other flours for a lighter texture and you will find it in lots of gluten free recipes.
  3. If you don’t use eggs for allergy or ethical reasons then try mixing 1 tbsp of cornfour with 3 tbsp of water.
  4. If you want to avoid chemicals you can make your own blusher out of corn flour! Mix together ¼ cup of corn flour with 1-3 teaspoons of hibiscus powder, add more if you like it pinker.
