What's Inside?

  • Potato Starch is made with the whole potato, including the skin.
  • The potatoes may be cooked or left raw. After the potatoes are dried, they are then ground into flour.
  • Potato Starch is starch extracted from potatoes.
  • The cells of the root tubers of the potato plant contain leucoplasts.
  • To extract the starch, the potatoes are crushed, and the starch grains are released from the destroyed cells.
  • The Potato Starch is then washed out and dried to powder.

Benefits?

  • As resistant starch ferments, it feeds the healthy bacteria inside the colon as it converts into short-chain fatty acids.
  • It is effective in thickening sauces, makes a suitable gluten-free addition to baking recipes, and can act as a suitable coating for foods during frying.
  • This root vegetable is also an excellent source of hydration for the skin.

Uses?

  • Potato starch is a dry ingredient that you can use in baking to help provide thickness and structure to the product.
  • As it is gluten-free, potato starch can make a suitable gluten-free alternative for flour in baking recipes.
  • However, too much potato starch can give baked goods a dry, crumbly texture. Therefore, it can feature in baking recipes alongside other starches.
