Our certified gluten-free potato starch, also known as potato starch flour, is used to thicken sauces, gravies, soups, puddings, and pie fillings. Naturally gluten-free and flavorless, potato starch is also ideal for adding moistness and a fluffy texture to baked goods. Potato starch has a lower gelatinisation temperature than cornstarch, making it a great last-minute thickener for soups and sauces.
Potato starch is made from the extracted starch of peeled potatoes, which is washed out and processed into powder form. Potato starch is bland, making it perfect for use in both savory and sweet recipes, as it won’t affect flavor.
Since potato starch thickens more quickly than grain starches, it’s best to use it toward the end of cooking. Sauces thickened with root starches like this one appear more translucent than those thickened with grain starches, which typically creates an opaque look. Potato starch should never be boiled since it will lose its thickening ability.
Unlike grain starches like wheat flour and cornstarch, potato starch is kosher and permitted for Passover. It is also made from unmodified (native) potatoes.
