The Difference Between Corn Flour, Corn Meal And Corn Starch

The difference between corn flour and corn meal

Simply put, corn flour is more finely ground than cornmeal. Any ground corn product with a particle diameter of greater than 0.2 millimeters can be considered cornmeal. Cornmeal is used to make polenta and cornbread. Grits are a type of coarsely ground cornmeal (0.6–0.12 millimeters in diameter) used to make a breakfast porridge popular in the Southern United States.

The difference between corn flour and corn starch

Corn flour is a type of flour made by grinding corn kernels, whereas cornstarch is a food ingredient made by extracting pure starch from corn. Cornstarch is produced by soaking whole corn kernels then milling the softened germ and endosperm separately. Starch is extracted from the soaking liquid, the germ, and the endosperm using centrifugal force. The starch is then useful as a thickening agent in stews and sauces. As a thickener, cornstarch is usually mixed with liquid to form a slurry before it's added to hot liquid. In the United Kingdom, the term “cornflour” actually refers to cornstarch.
