What is organic potato starch?
Organic Potato starch is produced by fresh potatoes. The potatoes are crushed, and the starch grains are released from the destroyed cells. The starch is then extracted and dried to powder. Organic potato starch can replace cornstarch in most cases as it is also a thickener for foods, such as soups, sauces, batters, baked goods, etc.
It contains typical large oval spherical granules, their size ranges between 5 and 100 μm. Potato starch contains minimal protein or fat. This gives the powder a clear white color, and the cooked starch typical characteristics of neutral taste, good clarity, high binding strength, long texture, and a minimal tendency to foaming or yellowing of the solution.
Potato starch contains approximately 800 ppm phosphate bound to the starch, this increases the viscosity and gives the solution a slightly anionic character, a low gelatinization temperature (approximately 140 °F or 60 °C), and high swelling power.
