Subsitutes for cornstarch

Cornstarch Substitutes

Cornstarch is a great ingredient for making crispy coatings and thickening your soups, but we don’t always have cornstarch in our pantry. There are other alternatives to cornstarch that you can use when you need something in a pinch.

Here are some substitutes for cornstarch in recipes:

  • Arrowroot powder: Arrowroot powder is a flavorless thickening agent that can replace cornstarch in recipes. Use it in the same quantity as cornstarch.
  • Potato starch: Potato starch is a gluten-free substitute for cornstarch with a similar texture and thickening power. Use the same amount as cornstarch in the recipe.
  • Tapioca flour: Tapioca flour is a gluten-free thickener with a sweet taste that can add shine to sauces and desserts. Use the same amount as cornstarch in your recipe.
  • All-purpose flour: All-purpose flour can replace cornstarch, but it is less effective in thickening sauces and gravies. You’ll need to use twice the amount of all-purpose flour as cornstarch in the recipe.
  • Rice flour: Rice flour works as a thickening agent, but has a gritty texture. Use the same amount of rice flour as cornstarch in the recipe.
