this is my domestic try to burn cornstarch. I made it in order to show how easy is to burn cornstarch by blowing a candle with cornstarch.
People is not very well used in thinking about cereals as fuels, but it can cause explosions!
I learnt this methods on internet by searching on twitter about atex and cereal dust explosions thanks to the people who supported me!
