So, what is fecola?

Fecola is a versatile food ingredient that has been used in various culinary traditions worldwide. Also known as potato starch, it is derived from the starchy part of potatoes and is characterized by its fine texture and neutral flavor. Fecola is a gluten-free and paleo-friendly ingredient that is often used as a thickener in soups, sauces, and gravies. Due to its high resistance to heat, it can also be used as a binding agent in baking, allowing for a lighter and more tender crumb. Additionally, Fecola is an excellent alternative to cornstarch in many recipes, making it an ideal ingredient for those with corn allergies or sensitivities.
