Uses

Maize starch is used as a thickening agent in liquid-based foods (e.g., soup, sauces, gravies, custard), usually by mixing it with a lower-temperature liquid to form a paste or slurry. It is sometimes preferred over flour alone because it forms a translucent mixture, rather than an opaque one.

It is usually included as an anti-caking agent in powdered sugar (10X or confectioner's sugar). Baby powder often includes maize starch among its ingredients. It is therefore, a great ingredient in home-made cosmetics and hygiene products that need thickening such as toothpaste.

Maize starch added to a batter which coated chicken nuggets increased oil absorption and crispness after the latter stages of frying.

Maize starch is the preferred anti-stick agent on medical products made from natural latex, including condoms, diaphragms and medical gloves. Prior usage of talc was abandoned as talc was believed to be a carcinogen.

Maize starch is used to supply glucose to humans who have glycogen storage disease (GSD). Without this, they would not thrive (i.e. little, if any, weight gain) and thus die.

Maize starch can be given to children starting at 6 – 12 months which allows feeds to be spaced and glucose fluctuations to be minimised.
