Potato Starch Organic
The potato is a plant that stores energy in the form of starch in underground tubers. The starch the plant stores in stem tubers edible to humans, which are also called potatoes like the plant itself. The potato is native to South America.
History of the Potato
The potato was brought to Europe from South America by Spanish explorers. But as farmers knew that the stems and fruit of the plant were not edible, they thought that the tubers would be too and it was only used as pig feed. It was not until 1727 that the potato was first recognised as a food in its own right in Friesland.
Since the 18th century, the potato has become one of the staple foods in many European countries. Potatoes are an important source of carbohydrates and they also contain vitamin B6, vitamin C and fiber.
Potato starch is starch extracted from the tuber of the potato. In the cells of potatoes are starch grains. To extract the starch the potatoes are ground, grated (releasing the starch grains), separated and dried into powder. Unlike corn and wheat starch, potato starch contains little protein and fat.
Applications of potato starch
In the food industry, potato starch is used, among other things, in Asian cuisine for binding noodles and sauces. Manufacturers also use potato starch for the production of wine gums, nuts and chips and as a binding agent in bakery products. Potato starch has a neutral taste, gives a clear binding and does not change the color of the liquid to be bound. At Vehgroshop you can buy organic potato starch.
