Fielder's "Wheaten Cornflour" is wheat starch, but White Wings Cornflour 
is maize and is advertised as gluten-free.  It can't be that hard to 
get, since I found it on the Woolworth's web site.  I think Woolworth's 
Home Brand is also maize, although I couldn't confirm (it doesn't say 
"wheaten" on the front of the packet).
