Organic Potato Starch
This organic potato starch is made from organically grown potatoes that have been peeled, mixed with water and then dehydrated to form potato starch flour. Due to this unique process it contains resistant starch, which functions kind of like soluble fibre and therefore has various benefits for digestive health. It is a light and very fine flour that readily absorbs water when heated, therefore it works well as a thickening agent. It lends a light, soft and moist texture to baked goods that is hard to match with any other flour. The milling of these organic potatoes is done with meticulous care using traditional methods to bring exceptional quality. There has been no chemical bleaching, no alcohol treatment, no additives, no anti-bacterial agents, no anti-fungal agents and no bromate added.
Because of its ability to thicken, potato starch is a great addition to sauces, soups and gravies to give them a little more texture. To avoid it from clumping, gradually add it to these liquids, mixing well as you go. It is also popular in sweet baking or savoury cooking due to its light consistency and slightly sweet flavour. Potato starch can be included in potato bread and savoury pancake recipes, or can even be used as the key ingredient when making dumplings. It is a popular ingredient in gluten-free baking where it is best combined with other gluten-free flours to increase its binding activity. Give it a go in your recipes for bread, loaves, muffins and cakes.
