Most commonly used as a thickener, nutritious and flavorful potato flour is created when dried ground potatoes are passed through a perforated mesh screen. At a glance, potato flour resembles potato flakes. However, potato flour produces a much thicker, stickier substance when combined with liquid. This quality makes potato flour an ideal texturizing agent for gravies and baked goods. It is also used as a dusting flour for fried and sautéed foods.
Food producers also utilize potato flour for baked goods such as biscuits, pancakes, breads, muffins, and cookies. Potato flour is also ideal in reducing gluten content because unlike bread flour, it contains no gluten.
