So, what is amídon de pois?

Amídon de pois, also known as pea starch, is a gluten-free food ingredient extracted from the endosperm of peas. It has a white to off-white appearance and a neutral taste, making it versatile for use in various food products. Amídon de pois can act as a thickener, stabilizer, and binder in foods such as soups, sauces, dressings, and baked goods. It is also an excellent source of carbohydrates and dietary fiber. Due to its plant-based origin and gluten-free nature, amídon de pois has gained popularity as a healthier alternative to traditional wheat-based ingredients in modern diets.
