Organic Corn Flour (Gluten Free, Bulk) - 20kg

Organic Corn Flour is produced by finely milling corn (maize) kernel into a soft, yellow flour. No further refinement or processing is then applied. 

Organic Corn Flour is a nutritious flour to include in your diet. It is high in fibre which is important to maintain healthy digestion. Corn Flour also contains minerals and vitamins including magnesium, iron, potassium and vitamin Bs.

Corn Flour is a versatile, naturally gluten free flour that can be used in many different sweet and savoury recipes. It is great for making tortillas, corn bread, pancakes and muffins. Corn Flour can also be used as a thickening agent in recipes like custard, gravy, sauces and soups. 


NOTE: Corn Flour & Corn Starch are often used interchangeably, and can be a source of confusion.  However, cornstarch and corn flour play very different roles in baking... 

Cornstarch is obtained by extracting the starch from corn grain, specifically from the endosperm of the kernel. It is almost 100% starch, without any fibre, protein, fat or other components. It’s a very very fine white powder that’s chalky in appearance and that ’squeaks’ when you rub it between your fingers. Cornstarch is often used as a thickening agent to thicken sauces and custards.

Corn flour is obtained by grinding entire dried corn kernels into a fine powder. It’s basically very finely ground corn meal. In addition to the starch, it also contains fibre, protein and a small amount of fat. It is a ‘protein’ gluten free flour &  adds flavour and structure to gluten free bakes – although the amount of structure it provides is pretty negligible compared to that achieved by “regular” wheat flour. It can be substituted with an equal weight of light buckwheat flour, sorghum flour,  or oat flour (the latter only if you’re not sensitive to oats).

  • While both corn flour and masa harina are flours made from corn, masa harina is milled from corn kernels that have been soaked in a slaked lime (calcium hydroxide) solution to remove the hull. In Spanish, the name ‘masa harina’ means “dough flour” and it’s used to make corn tortillas, tamales and other Latin American dishes.
