    1. No, it's NOT.
      Cornstarch is made from the germ of the corn, the part that germinates when the corn kernel is planted. It doesn't have much protein.
      Corn flour, on the other hand, has most of the protein and more complex sugars.
      You can't substitute the one for the other in any recipe.
      However, if you SUBSTITUTE a small amount of cornstarch for flour in a recipe, your crust will be crisper and your dough more tender.
