What is organic potato starch powder?
Organic potato starch is a natural and gluten-free starch extracted from organic potatoes. It is a white, fine powder with a neutral taste and a high swelling capacity. It can be used as a thickener, binder, filler, or texturizer in various applications such as food, beverages, supplements, and cosmetics. It can improve the consistency, stability, and shelf life of your products.
Organic potato starch has a low glycemic index and a high digestibility, meaning that it can provide a steady and sustained energy supply. It also contains resistant starch, which is a type of dietary fiber that can support gut health and blood sugar regulation. Organic potato starch is suitable for people who are allergic or sensitive to gluten, wheat, corn, or soy.
We offer organic potato starch with different specifications, ranging from native to modified. The specification indicates the degree of modification and functionality of the starch. The native starch is the purest form of starch with minimal processing. The modified starches are chemically or physically altered to enhance their properties and performance.
Native: This specification has no modification and retains the original properties of potato starch. It is suitable for applications that require a high viscosity and a low temperature gelatinization, such as bakery products, noodles, and dumplings.
Acetylated: This specification has a low degree of acetylation and improves the stability and clarity of potato starch. It is suitable for applications that require a medium viscosity and a high temperature gelatinization, such as sauces, soups, and gravies.
Pregelatinized: This specification has a high degree of pregelatinization and increases the solubility and instant thickening of potato starch. It is suitable for applications that require a low viscosity and a cold water swelling, such as instant foods, beverages, and desserts.
All our organic potato starches are certified by EU & USDA organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, halal, and kosher standards. They are produced with high-quality organic potatoes and processed in a hygienic environment. We ensure the traceability and safety of our products.
