Mike said: oh,no,you are wrong.I have found as below for this question(What is corn starch?),it will help you,my kids.

i agree with the last suggestion HOWEVER potato starch works equally well and does not cause a variation in flavor and also does not require your mixture to boil to thicken, in fact the mixture should not be boiling when you are thickening

In fact if you decide flour is your best choice you should make a slurry
which it 1 tsp water and 1 tsp flour for every cup you plan to thicken have a whisk handy and stir like crazy so it does not have time to lump up up and be a gluey mess. Cooking to a boil for 1 to 2 minutes to see full thickening power

Cornstarch, or cornflour, is the starch of the maize grain, commonly known as corn. It is also grown from the endosperm, or white heart, of the corn kernel.

The only reliable substitute for corn starch is flour...but be careful as flour has a tendency to want to lump up and become a gluey mess!

starch derived from corn. It%26#039;s a powder. Known as corn flour in the UK.

You can usually sub flour or arrowroot powder for corn starch.

Don%26#039;t forget about arrowroot and cassava flour, both excellent thickeners...
