What is the difference between Potato Starch and potato flour??
- Potato starch is extracted from crushed potatoes through a washing proces, and then it undergoes drying to obtain a fine, bright-white powder.
- Potato flour is produced by cooking whole peeled potatoes, followed by drying and grinding them into a fine, beige-colored powder.
Potato starch is derived from potatoes, specifically from the cells of their root tubers. These cells house leucoplasts, which contain starch grains. To obtain the starch, the potatoes are crushed, releasing the starch grains from the damaged cells. The starch is then separated from the solution through settling or hydrocyclones, and subsequently dried into a Powder, form.
