I have celiac and once I was diagnosed I thought my pain was over. I just found out that I have an intolerance to corn and potato....most recipes call for corn starch and I know this can be substituted with arrowroot but what about potato starch.

does anyone have an answer

thanks in advance for your response

What about rice flour? I don't think any of them are a 1-to-1 switch....many can often be used interchangably, until you get the mixture that you like. There are also many bean flours as well.
check out that link...maybe some ideas for you? :)

Tapioca starch can be used too, instead of cornstarch.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Tapioca, corn and potato starch can be used pretty interchangeably, I've found.

The gluten-free flours from grains behave differently in baking recipes, especially. The liquid to dry ratios are different.
