Product Description

Lotus Potato Starch is a vegetable starch made from dried potatoes.  Can be used as a thickener and in baking.

Some of the benefits of Potato Starch include:

  • Naturally Gluten-Free - making it an excellent thickening, binding, or texturizing agent in gluten-free cooking and baking. 
  • Contains a neutral flavour, meaning it can be added to recipes without affecting their flavour profile.
  • They have a high binding strength
  • Unlike many other starches, they form a clear gel (instead of being cloudy). 
  • Improved texture. It can make products mouister and extend their shelf life.

Some common uses of Potato Starch include:

  1. Thickening Agent: Potato starch is commonly used as a thickener in soups, sauces, and gravies. It provides a smooth, translucent finish and has a neutral taste that doesn't interfere with the flavor of the dish.

  2. Baking: It's used in gluten-free baking to improve the texture of bread and pastries. Potato starch can add moisture to baked goods, helping them to stay fresh longer.

  3. Noodles and Pasta: It's used in the production of certain types of noodles and pasta to improve texture and cooking qualities.

  4. Coating: Potato starch is used as a coating for fried foods to achieve a crispy, crunchy exterior. It's often used in the preparation of French fries, fried chicken, and other battered foods.

  5. Dairy Products: Used in dairy products, potato starch is used as a stabiliser to improve texture and consistency in products like cheese and yoghurt.

  6. Confectionery: It's sometimes used in lollies and sweets as a gelling agent, contributing to the chewy texture of gummy candies and marshmallows.
