Potatoes Starch Flour
Potato Starch, ( Potato Flour, Potato Starch Flour)Â Â isÂ Â starchÂ extracted from potatoes.Â The cells of the root tubersÂ of the potato plant contain starch grains. To extract the starch, the potatoes are crushed; the starch grains are released from the destroyed cells. The starch is then washed out and dried to powder.Â Potato Starch is used as a thickener for sauces, soups, and stews. Potato starch tolerates higher temperatures than cornstarch when used as a thickener. It is used to add moisture to many baked goods.
