    corn flour is made of finely ground cornmeal, NOT to be confused with cornstarch. The exception is in British recipes where the term "cornflour" is used synonymously with the U.S. word cornstarch. Corn flour comes in yellow and white and is used for breading and in combination with other flours in baked goods. Corn flour is milled from the whole kernel, while cornstarch is obtained from the endosperm portion of the kernel. Masa Harina is a special corn flour that is the basic ingredient for corn tortillas. White corn flour blends well with other food ingredients and can be blended with wheat flour to reduce gluten for cakes, cookies, pastries and crackers. White corn flour is used as a filler, binder and thickener in cookie, pastry and meat industries.

    corn flour不等於太白粉

    木薯粉/泰國生粉/太白粉 Tapioca Starch/ Tapioca Flour/ Potato Starch

    木薯粉是阿媽用來勾茨的馬鈴薯澱粉,日式百貨公司售賣的叫太白粉,也是同一樣東西。太白粉加水遇熱會凝結成透明的粘稠狀,使湯汁看起來杰些,同時使食物外表看起來有光澤。貓由要謹記太白粉不能直接加熱水,否則會立即凝結成塊而無法煮散。食物放涼之後,茨汁會變得較稀,因此一般整蛋糕/做西點多利用粟粉來達到粘稠的特性而不使用太白粉。

    泰國生粉可在街市、糧油雜賃店、裕記、一般超級市找到。

    粟粉/膺粟粉/粟米粉 Corn Starch

    粟粉是白的粉末,與木薯粉類似,具有凝膠作用,整蛋糕/做派餡時會用到,有時在做蛋糕時也會少量放入,用以降低麵粉筋度,增加蛋糕鬆軟口感。由於翻譯問題,很多書把粟粉 (Corn Starch) 譯成「玉米粉」,同時也把細粒狀的粉黃色的玉米粉 (Corn Meal) 也譯成「玉米粉」,,做成混亂,其實是不同的材料,Corn Meal 大多用來作雜糧口味的麵包或灑在烤盤上,作為麵糰防沾之用。而細粒狀的黃色玉米粉 (Corn Meal) 在 muffin 的使用上較高,各貓友要記住呀, Corn Meal 不是粉末狀,而是細粒狀的玉米粉。 整墨西哥菜時,經常會用到 Corn Meal。所以麻,阿貓建議貓友仔要睇食譜見到「玉米粉」要留神呀。 Corn Starch 和 Corn Meal 是不可互相替換的。
