Reviews For Potato Starch
Based on 11 Reviews
Use it Sparingly
I had never worked with Potato Starch before, but saw it used in a lot of Japanese recipes so decided to buy some. I used it to fry some pork and found if you coat the pork too heavy with the potatoes starch, there is a really bitter after taste. Need to use it very sparingly. The second batch came out much better when i lightly coded the pork.
Works great to thicken sauces
I like this much better than corn starch and I've heard this is supposed to be good for you
I am so excited, I have seen a drop in my blood sugar. I hope it continues.
I think this product is great. It has almost no flavor and can be added to smoothies or plain water for a nutritional boost.
Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch
I use this as a nutritional supplement/prebiotic to help the probiotics I use to be more effective. It has almost no flavor and can be added to smoothies or just dissolved in water.It is very economical and one of the best products for this purpose.
High quality brand. Many uses. I use this in place of flour except for baking!
Mark Hyman, MD recommends resistance starch (this brand in particular) to improve metabolism and blood sugar while optimizing gut flora. Thought I'd give it a try . . .
Every day for the past couple of weeks, I've been drinking a heaping tablespoon dissolved in water or in smoothies. Tasteless and quick dissolving, it's an easy and inexpensive positive thing to do for yourself.
Like the texture better than corn starch
I bake a gluten free bread which calls for a lot of corn starch. I started using this to substitute for some of the corn starch and I like the texture of the bread a lot better.
Gluten free starch
I use Bob's Red Mill a lot because the company makes some of the best natural and gluten free products on the market.
This is a great starch for pancakes and waffles, and it's also great for my organic donuts (I might post a recipe on this on a second review). The potato starch works as good if not better than traditional cornstarch, and there's no difference in how the food tastes at all. It also works well to make gravy thicker and more flavorful, so it's not just useful for baking

Great instead of cornstarch
I'm allergic to corn, so this is a Godsend when it comes to using it for cooking. I make a lot of Mexican and Spanish stews and sauces, and they need to be thick to be authentic!
This potato starch is all natural and does a great job of making base sauce heavy and flavorful without the need for corn. I'm not tasting any difference in my food, so this works great and I don't have to cut back on some of my favorite dishes.

Thickens My Soups
This is perfect as a thickener. I used to use gluten-filled thickeners for my favorite soups, but after finding out my son has an allergy, I've had to find something else. I've tried other solutions including cornstarch, but none of them reheat well - which is so important because we usually have left-overs. This potato starch reheats really well, and it does a great job of thickening the soup as well. It doesn't feel nearly as water-y after I add some, and it's easy to add bit-by-bit until you get the perfect amount. Plus, it doesn't add nearly as much taste, so it's like a perfect solution!
