Recently, I went into a baking pit and found that corn starch needs to be added to the cake, but what is the role of corn starch?! Please look forward to the following breakdown:
When using corn starch, first of all, it can be used in the pharmaceutical industry. This is because corn starch is the most important raw material in the antibiotic industry, and can produce various antibiotics such as penicillin and cephalosporins. It has made a great contribution to the pharmaceutical industry. Corn starch can also be used as a drug excipient, and many pharmaceutical companies use it as a filler and adhesive, so it is still important.
② Food processing
Corn starch is also widely used in many industries such as food processing. Not only can we use corn starch in cooking, but it can also be directly used as a raw material to produce various fast food products such as ice cream, and it can also be used. Corn starch is also rich in protein and amino acids that can be absorbed by the human body, which can have great benefits for the human body. (When making a cake, add it: it is mainly to reduce the strength of the cake. If you use low gluten flour or cake powder (in fact, cake powder is made of flour with corn flour added and some bulking agent added), you do not need to add corn flour. But if you use ordinary flour, you have to add corn flour in order to reduce the gluten of flour, so the cake will be soft, not hard and tough. Also, when mixing flour, do not exert any effort to stir in circles for too long. Mix gently up and down to avoid gluten from the flour and the cake will not become soft
③ Beer brewing
In addition to the corn starch situation described above, in fact, corn starch is also the most important raw material for beer. You can directly add corn starch to malt juice, which can improve the sugar content of the fermentation broth, and also simplify the production process. Therefore, we should have a better understanding of corn starch, which is an important use of corn starch.
Corn starch not only works well when used in cooking, but also has many uses in daily life. The above mentioned uses of corn starch are all effective, which naturally contributes to our health. Therefore, everyone should know more about corn starch.
