Acidic ingredients weaken the thickening power of corn starch. Try additional corn starch or add the corn starch at the last possible moment.


Why won’t my corn starch thicken?

Mixture is not at a boil or the mixture did not boil long enough or it boiled for too long.

The corn starch was not dissolved completely before heat was applied to the recipe. We recommend mixing corn starch with cold water or milk before adding to your sauce/gravy, then bringing to a boil.

If the recipe calls for flour, use 1/2 as much corn starch. i.e. If the recipe calls for 2 Tbsp. flour, use 1 Tbsp. corn starch.
