It is said that corn flour has an anti-atherogenic effect on cholesterol levels; thereby, protecting against heart diseases and complications. Corn flour is beneficial for the heart's health as it contains an optimal fatty acid combination, which enables omega-3 fatty acids remove damaging cholesterol and replace them.


Hmmmmm........... I'm not sure about any of that :think:

There is a lot of stuff online saying much the same.

Like most people I grow up with corn flour being used in gravy and custard. When instance gravy was launched in the 1980's, I like most people forgot all about corn flour.

Until KFC shut down for a while last year :crying:

Only buying a packet of cornflour due to the KFC recipe I'd found online requirement. And by the way my home made air fried chicken is better :proud:

Since then I've used cornflour more. Its really improved my batter mix for Yorkshire puddings and toad in the hole. I've finally understood why American pancakes are so different to UK recipe. The Americans cook with cornflour more than us.

For now I'd stick with my instance gravy and custard, (there just too convenient :blush:)

I will try and use more cornflour in my regularly cooking, stew or soups..... instead of those overpriced flavour pot thingys.

I probably use it once a year but if I thought it had some health benefits I’d use it more

Isn't cornflour that stuff you use to thicken stews? I've never noticed any difference in my stews whether I use it or not.

Cornflour is very useful for sensory play, you mix a lot of it with water, put it on a tray. It is solid if you push it one way with your fingers and liquid the other way. It’s called Ooberlick (different spellings but that’s How I spell it [shrug65465.gif] )

Gravy's not that hard to make :whee:




There a current trend to move away from "processed" foods. Eating a little more whole food will only do good. A return to pre war cooking techniques may be the answer may improve general health :think:

Us that were brought up proper were taught not to play with our food [adrian.gif]
