Production & Sourcing
Pre-gelatinized potato starch is produced through a controlled heating and drying process. First, raw potato starch is mixed with water to create a slurry. This mixture is then heated, causing the starch granules to swell and absorb water, effectively “pre-gelatinizing” them. The slurry is then further processed to remove excess moisture, and finally, it’s dried to form a fine, powdery substance.
