Potato flakes and potato granules are being used more and more as food ingredients or additives by many food manufacturers.
There are actually two main types of potato flakes produced:
Full process flakes
These kind of flakes have a low free starch content as well as a pulpy consistency
Low leach flakes
The low leach flakes have a high free starch content with high water binding capacity and sticky texture.
Both shows functionality as a stabilized cold swelling binder and texturizer with expansion regulation of:
• pulpy texture (full process), pasty texture (low leach)
• excellent textures in snack application such as crispy, crunchy, soft and hard
• typical taste and flavour in application
• optimal dough building and expansion
• white or yellow colour
Potato flakes are mainly used in the following segments:
