Production & Sourcing
Native Potato Starch is derived from fresh potatoes through a process that involves several steps. First, the potatoes are thoroughly washed and then crushed to release their starch-rich content. This mixture is then separated through a combination of sieving and centrifugation, which separates the starch from the other components like fibers and water. The starch is then washed, dried, and milled to create the fine white powder known as Native Potato Starch.
