    From Canada - Cornmeal is course, ground dried corn. Corn flour is yellow, lightly ground cornmeal. This gives the delicious cake the 'gritty' texture. Cornstarch is the starch removed from the corn. It is white, and used for thickening sauces etc.

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    Not sure I follow, what is the controversy? Do people think they can substitute corn starch for cornmeal?
