Potato starch (potato flour)

POTATO STARCH is obtained through mechanical separation of starch grains from other components in potatoes followed by rinsing, purification, drying and sifting. Starch is a polysaccharide which plays the role of storage substance in plants. Crystalline structure of starch grain is build of branched starch macromolecule, amylopectin, and linear macromolecule, amylose. Because amylose and amylopectin differ in many important features, the proportion of each in a given type of starch determines the physical chemistry characteristics of the substance. Starch is one of the most multifunctional substances used in foods industry.
Its natural property of thickening and gelling is used in some applications. In foods and pharmaceutical industry, starch is used for giving a product proper texture, appearance (form), moistness, consistency and storage durability.
