Maize / Corn Starch
It is believed that Corn starch was discovered in the year 1840 by Thomas Kingsford whilst he was working as the superintendent of a wheat starch factory in Jersey City, New Jersey. Until 1852, corn starch was used primarily for starching laundry and industrial uses. Derived from corn (maize), it is a very popular starch of choice for the thickening of sauces and soups.
