So, what is potatoe starch?

Potato starch is a fine, white powder that is extracted from potatoes. It is commonly used as a thickener and binder in a variety of food products, such as soups, sauces, gravies, and baked goods. Potato starch is a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour, making it an excellent choice for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. It has a neutral taste and is easily digestible, making it a versatile ingredient in many recipes. Potato starch can also be used as a coating for fried foods, providing a crispy texture without the use of wheat-based flours. Additionally, it is a common ingredient in Asian cuisine, used to thicken sauces and soups.
