Potatoes are crushed to extract starch from them. The starch grain are then released from the
cells that are destroyed. It is then washed out and dried to convert them into powder.
Potato starch comes with typical large oval spherical granules that range in size between 5 to
100 μm. Potato starch is considered a very refined one, containing very less of fat or protein.

characteristics of good clarity, neutral taste, long texture, high binding strength, and
minimum tendency to yellowing or foaming of the solution.
