Potato starch is particularly well suited for use in the food industry as a substitute for fat or as a thickening and filling agent; it is also used as a carrier of flavours and as a stabilising agent when used in emulsions. Potato starch is also used as a water binding agent in the food industry.
Two special features of potato starch are its white colour and neutral flavour as well as its high viscosity.
Potato starch is obtained by mechanical separation from potatoes components, washing out, purification, drying and sieving. Product is destinated for food and technical purposes.
Used in a food, chemical, paper and textile industries, to starch of clothes in householding, for baking, thickening of soup, sauces, etc. and also for technical purposes in different branches of industry.
