Potato Starch – Large Jar


Ingredients: Potato Starch, Preservative 220

Potato Starch is made by crushing potatoes and washing them to extract the starch, which is then dehydrated to produce the final product – a mild flavoured ingredient, with no potato flavour. With a fine, smooth texture, potato starch makes a great gluten and grain-free replacement for wheat flour or corn starch in many recipes where a ‘thickener’ is needed – think pie fillings, gravy, and sauces. To avoid the starch from clumping, add gradually, and mix well.

Potato Starch is also a popular ingredient for gluten-free baking, where it is best combined with other gluten-free flours, acting as a binder to improve the structure and texture of baked goods in place of gluten, resulting in light and fluffy bread, muffins, cookies and cakes. As it can be fried at a high temperature, it works well for smooth, crunchy batters, too. An excellent pantry staple for bakers, gluten free folk, or just anyone who loves to cook!
