Also known as: Potato Starch
Potato flour (also known as potato starch) is a gluten-free flour that is made from dehydrated potatoes. The potato is pressed into a powder after being washed, peeled and cooked. It is typically mixed with other gluten-free flours and starches to make baked goods. It is naturally white and also has a neutral taste. Potato flour is often used to bind ingredients in gluten-free recipes. When mixed with other gluten-free flours and starches, potato flour helps baked goods rise. The flour can also be used to thicken sauces and soups.
