About Argo Corn Starch
This canister holds 35-ounces, or more than two-pounds' worth, of pure corn starch. It's produced by Argo, a brand that has been trusted in homes across the country for more than 100 years. Cornstarch is used in residential and commercial kitchens for thickening stews, sauces, pie filling and gravies. Use one tablespoon of Argo starch in place of two tablespoons of flour when cooking your sauces and you will have a thickened and smooth consistency every time. The cornstarch powder comes in a plastic tub that helps prevent storage and keep the cornstarch fresher for longer. It's shelf-stable, so simply place in your pantry and use when needed.
Is This Cornstarch Powder Gluten-Free?
Yes! Argo starch is gluten-free, so it can be used in place of regular flours when thickening a gluten-free dish. While some gluten-free flours are pricy and hard to find, Argo maintains an economical price and versatility that is usually hard to come by.
