Health Impact
Unless organic, corn starch is likely made from GMO corn. It is also highly refined, and therefore stripped of any nutritional value. Due to its high glycemic index, if consumed in large quantities, corn starch can spike blood sugar, leading to potential blood sugar dysregulation and accompanying issues.
