cornstarch is metabolized by the body into glucose. therefore, since diabetics are glucose intolerant, cornstarch would be contraindicated in their diet. cornstarch is metabolized by the body into glucose. therefore, since diabetics are glucose intolerant, cornstarch would be contraindicated in their diet.
A stationary object will sink in cornstarch. If an object has kinetic energy (is moving) it will transfer its energy to the cornstarch when it stikes it. This kinetic energy causes the cornstarch to solidify temporarily, once this energy dissipates into the material around where the object struck, the cornstarch becomes liquid again.
Well, there is no chemical reaction, really, since the cornstarch still remains cornstarch. (and if you dry it, it becomes cornstarch again) It's just that the cornstarch lightly bonds to the water which then lightly bonds to other cornstarch, creating a net-like substance. This net is easily broken and made, thus increasing the viscosity of the fluid and adding some other interesting properties to it as well.
I know of a great cornstarch support group that may be able to answer some of your questions concerning the side effects of eating cornstarch. email@example.com Eating too much cornstarch has been associated with anemia, and the condition of craving cornstarch is known as Amylophagia. It is treatable. Talk to your doctor about it.
