Substitution For Potato Starch
0

8 posts in this topic

My nephew is not only gluten-intolerant but is allergic to nightshade vegetables which includes potatoes. Lots of baking recipes have potato starch as a major ingredient, and I understand it makes baked goods more moist than rice flour. Is there something I can use to substitute for the potato starch that will produce a similar product?

If he can tolerate it, tapioca starch would be a good substitution.

I've been using sweet potato flour, which I can get from Asian grocery stores.

I haven't noticed a difference in the finished product.

Another starch that I have been using instead of potato,or corn starch is amaranth flour- starch.

I agree on the arrowroot suggestion. It seems to work better if you choose a flour that is not already in the recipe, I find.

I meant to say arrowroot too. I don't know how, or why I thought about amaranth flour. Sorry
