I was browsing and found this great idea! I had a clue about the calorie count before. I've used it in lieu of flour in making a white sauce, but didn't know the nutritional value until now.
What a find!

Going to have to try out the cornstarch instead of making a rue with flour and butter for homemade mac n cheese. You make a slurry with it first, right then add it to what your trying to thicken?

I use cornstarch regularly to thicken gravy and sauces because we must be gluten free. It is also good to use as a dusting on meat before you brown it and add it to stir frys.

I heard that corn meal it is good for putting in meatballs to help make them stick. Then you bake before putting in sauce. I am going to try it because I usually use oatmeal which has many calories.

I use cornstarch as thickener for my homemade hamburger helper variants. Not only does it thicken nicely, it doesn't get lumpy like flour when added to liquids!

Did you know that corn starch has 2xs the thickening power as flour so you use 1/2 as much with 1/2 the calories.!
