So, what is potatoes starch?

Potato starch is a fine white powder derived from potatoes that have been washed, peeled, and ground into a pulp. This gluten-free and vegan-friendly ingredient is an excellent thickening agent, commonly used in soups, sauces, and gravies. It is also used as a binder in gluten-free baked goods to replace wheat flour. Potato starch has a neutral taste and a smooth texture, which makes it perfect for enhancing the mouthfeel of foods without altering their flavors. This versatile ingredient is an essential pantry staple for those who seek to cook and bake with alternative flours.
