Description: Potato starch is a white free-flowing starch extracted from potatoes specially cultivated for the starch industry. It has the highest viscosity of any starch product due to its unique granular structure. It has minimal odour and flavour, making it ideal for mildly flavoured recipes. Sauces thickened with potato starch become transparent when cooked or cooled. Westpoint Natural’s potato starch is made from non-genetically modified potatoes and is sulphite-free.
Uses: Potato starch tolerates higher temperatures than corn starch and can replace it in most recipes. Potato starch can be used as a thickening agent or as a gluten-free alternative to flour in sauces and casseroles; use 1 teaspoon potato starch for each tablespoon of flour.
Storage: Store potato starch in a sealed container in a cool, dry area. Under these conditions, the shelf life of the product is estimated at 12 months.
