Information @ a Glance

  • Potato starch is starch extracted from potatoes. The cells of the root tubers of the potato plant contain starch grains (leucoplasts).
  • To extract the starch, the potatoes are crushed; the starch grains are released from the destroyed cells. The starch is then washed out and dried to powder.
  • Potato starch contains typical large oval spherical granules; their size ranges between 5 and 100 μm.
  • Potatoes contain around 20% starch, 2% fibres and 1% protein.
  • Potato starch is a very refined starch, containing minimal protein or fat. This gives the powder a clear white colour.
  • The cooked starch typical  characteristics of neutral taste, good clarity, high binding strength, long texture and a minimal tendency to foaming or  yellowing of the solution.
  • Potato starch and potato starch derivatives are used in many recipes, for example in noodles, wine gums, cocktail nuts,
    potato chips, hot dog sausages, bakery cream and instant soups and sauces, in gluten-free recipes.
  • Potato starch is also used in technical applications as wallpaper adhesive, for textile finishing and textile sizing, in paper coating and sizing and as an adhesive in paper sacks and gummed tape.
  • Potato starch was also used in one of the earlier color photography processes.
  • Potato starch also lowers plasma cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations, increases satiety, and possibly even reduces
    fat storage.
  • Potato starch is gluten free, it is very useful for people with gluten intolerance or wheat sensitivity. It is also a
    good source of energy.
  • The granule size of potato starch is definitely larger than other starches.
  • Compared to other starches, potato starch has a higher phosphorus content. Due to higher phosphorus content, potato starch exhibits extremely high viscosity.
  • In Japan the output of potato starch is 250,000 tons per year.
  • The present demand for the proposed product is estimated at 23.3 tones per annum. The demand is expected to reach at 64.29 tones by the year 2022.
  • The physicochemical characteristics of potato starch, its end use markets are different from those for wheat/maize starch. The volume of potato starch imported into the UK is sufficient to justify the construction of a potato starch plant in the UK,on the basis that import figures are higher than the capacity of most existing potato starch processing plants.
