As an additive for food processing, food starches are typically used as thickeners and stabilizers in foods such as puddings, custards, soups, sauces, gravies, pie fillings, and salad dressings, and to make noodles and pastas. Potato starch may be used in all traditional recipes replacing any other starch – and in most cases giving better functionality. Organic potato starch adapts extremely well to organic processing.
