Let's Do... Organic Potato Starch is a versatile gluten free starch, excellent for thickening and baking. It is great in breads, cookies and biscuits. Simply replace other starches one-to-one. For thickening, thoroughly mix 1 part starch with 2 parts water to make a slurry. Stir the slurry into a favorite sauce, gravy or pudding towards the end of cooking, stirring continuously over low heat until the desired thickness is achieved.
Organic Potato Starch is a great choice for thickening soups and sauces, as they will retain their intended taste and translucence rather than turning cloudy.
Potato starch is prized by chefs of many countries and ethnicities. Native to South America, potatoes have been a source of valuable dietary starch for thousands of years. However you use it, this versatile gluten free starch will serve you well. Enjoy!
