Potato starch is made from organically-grown potatoes that are peeled, mixed with water, and then dehydrated to form potato starch flour. Light and very fine, potato starch flour readily absorbs water when heated, so it's ideal as a thickening agent in sauces, soups and gravies. It lends a light, soft, and moist texture to baked goods.

No chemical bleaching, alcohol treatment, additives, anti-bacterial or anti-fungal agents. No bromate added.
 

Why use it?

Potato starch is a very refined starch, containing minimal protein or fat. It has a neutral taste and high binding strength. It lends a light, fluffy texture to gluten-free baking.
