Potato Starch can be used to replace cornstarch in most baking recipes. Potato starch powder tolerates higher temperatures than cornstarch, making it an excellent thickener for sauces, soups and stews. It adds moistness to any baked goods and is an essential ingredient in gluten free baking.

Details

Gluten Free Potato Starch is used as a thickener for sauces, soups, and stews. One of the benefits of potato starch is that it tolerates higher temperatures than cornstarch when used as a thickener. It's a natural way to add moistness to many baked goods. Check out our potato starch nutrition tab for more information!

Critical texture.
Soft and fluffy; I couldn't imagine what the texture of the bread would be without it.

Gluten free bread
I am using the Potato Starch in a gluten free bread mix. It is a crucial ingredient so the bread is edible and helps to create a good texture. I've also used it to thicken gravies with much success. I love all Bob's Red Mill Products. I know that they are always the highest quality.

Kudos on the new packaging; A big improvement!
I've been using Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch for the past couple years and have always been happy with it; though, the cellophane bag it came in has always necessitated transferring the product itself to a sturdier zip lock bag to ensure it stayed fresh & neat. I was very surprised, then, when I received my recent order to see that a new, resealable, much more durable bag is now being used for the packaging; the new velcro type closure is great and ensures a good seal every time - better yet, it means no more having to transfer to another bag for storage. Thank You!
The new velcro type resealable bag/packaging is a great improvement!

Potato Starch vs Flour???
I make my own gluten-free baking blend using millet flour, sweet rice flour, and potato starch. I accidentally ordered potato *flour* one time--this does not work, it is too gummy for baking (flour includes the potato peels and starch). You are welcome. (Potato flour is great for thickening gravies, soup. I had ordered 4-bags--that's a lot of gravy...) Let me know if you have any success using potato flour for anything else!

Darlene S on Jul 3, 2018
I'm gluten intolerant and the cost of store bought gluten free bread is so high and the quality of store bought bread is poor, I use a Mix of Rice Flours and potato starch to make a General Flour Mix that works quite well for me. I also add einkorn flour to make a tastier more stable bread. The Flour Mix works well in my bread maker. Overall quality and cost make me happy.
Lois B on Jun 16, 2018

Dr. Mark Hyman from the Eat Fat Get Thin diet and book, and PBS specials actually recommends your Potato Starch as a resistant starch. Are you sure about your answer on December 18 that it is not a resistant starch?
Diane C on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we are sure our statement is correct and this product is not a resistant starch.
Is this potato starch also resistant starch? The label notes 0 dietary fiber--so it does not sound like resistant starch
A shopper on Dec 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our Potato Starch is not a resistant starch. The process of removing the starch component from the potato eliminates any resistant starch benefits.
is your packaging recyclable?
Jamie N on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Our re-sealable packages are #7 plastic, which very few facilities accept, although some do. We would love to offer recyclable packaging, but right now it doesn’t exist in a way that meets our food safety standards and packaging needs. We have chosen the industry best standard for safety, seeking the most sanitary packaging that holds up well to packaging and shipping demands.
Is Potato Starch the same as Potato Flour? I've been using Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch in my baked cakes but our local grocer only has Bob's Red Mill Potato Flour now. Are they interchangeable?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2017
Potato Starch
Potato Starch
Potato Flour
Potato Flour
BEST ANSWER: Potato flour and potato starch are two different items. Potato flour is made from steamed, dried and ground russet potatoes. Potato starch (also know as potato starch flour – it can be confusing) is made from starch potatoes. The water is separated after grinding and the starch is then extracted from the remaining potato pulp. Potato Flour works well in baking and makes a great soup base while Potato Starch is added to baked goods to help retain moisture and produce a tender crumb. 1 Tbsp of Potato Flour is equal to ½ tsp Potato Starch.
Can you mix this with water to drink?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you could do that. It might get a bit thick, depending on your ratio of starch to water, but, yes, you can drink it.
