My husband is a new celiac and I am learning to cook all over again....I asked the health food store for potato starch flour, used in so many recipes and they said I had to order a case as they didnt sell much. What I got was potato flour. :angry: I need to know if it can be converted to potato starch flour by adding something such as corn starch?

This is new for me too, I am a willing supporter and want to do this right. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks

Joy

I have never tried to convert potato flour by adding anything to make it more strachy. But i have used potato flour as a straight across replacement for potato starch in some things. In dryer applications like cookies, starch or flour can be used, usually without any problems. In moist applications like cakes, potato flour is heavier and can make a cake a more dense.

You can order these things on-line if you can't get them locally, and depending on who you order from, shipping isn't that bad. kinnikinnick.com is a really good one and they have some pretty good pre-made foods too. They ship for a flat rate of 10$ no matter how much you buy.

Hope this helps a little...

I asked that same question a few months back. The health food store said it was the same thing. NOT TRUE. when a recipie calls for potatoe starch flour, what you want is potatoe starch. In my little experience, most recipes will say potaoe starch and note not flour. Potatoe flour is usually used in very small amounts, starch is used in larger quantities. You cannot convert the two. they are two different things.

I find when you make things with potato startch like cookies.. they are thin runny and flat.. but when you use potato flour they hold together better. So go ahead and substitute the potato flour, and if you can get it use like half tapioca startch or cornstartch

It's a grand experiement and you will find the right combinations that work for you!

I should have mentioned earlier that when I substitute potato flour for starch in a cookie recipe, there is usually a combination of flours, as it is in most gluten-free baking. When I make cookies I will usually use about 1/2 rice flour and a quarter each of tapioca and potato, and in this case I can turn out some really good cookies.

When you use something like potato flour in a cookie recipe that calls for potato starch, you might try increasing the temperature to set the structure of the cookie, before it goes flat. Sugar can make a difference too. Granulated sugar will melt, but powdered sugar will not. So if you are having trouble will flat cookies, if you substitute 1/4 of the granulated sugar for powdered, they will spread less.

Good Luck! And DLayman is right, when you expirement, the best gift is finding the formula that works for you.

You can find potato starch flour in most regular grocery stores in the Kosher section.

The difference between Potato Flour & Potato Starch?

Potato Flour is cooked potato that is dried and then powdered. It is the equivalent to dehydrated mashed potatoes, to which you add water. It is not in the recipe to act like or replace traditional flour. It smells/tastes like potato, because it is potato.

Potato Starch is the carbohydrate from the plant cell that is dissolved in hot water, dried and powdered. An equivalent is cornstarch. This is a non-gluten flour that is in the recipe to act like or replace traditional flour. It is odourless and tasteless.

Problems occur when Potato starch is called Potato Starch Flour. Because it is a mixture of both names, most of the time you will need to check the label of the substance you are purchasing: potato starch says "potato starch" on the nutritional label under ingredients.

The sweet potato "flour" is just the ground fibres of the root: of little nutritional value as it has been thoroughly washed to extract the starch. To be the equivalent to commercial potato flour, you would have to cook, dry and powder it.

My cookie flour mix is 5 c wht rice flour, 2-1/2 c potato flour (not starch) and 1-1/2 c tapioca flour. Ran out of potato flour; can potato starch be used instead? Live 1 hr from a store that may carry it and we've been without cookies for 2 weeks! My husband and I are having "cookie attacks"! Thanks!

FInd an Oriental market. In Japanese a very good potato starch is called katakuriko. clear plastic bag about 3 x 7 inches showing the white powder inside. # big blue Japanese characters on the fruit. Works way better than any corn starch.

    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
    • Yeah the histamine thing hit home a bit for me, as it mentioned everyone has their upper limits on it...explains why green canned fresh tomatoes fine...overly ripe sweet ones....instant puking, and why I have to really limit anything the citric acid, lemon, lime, garlic, onion, etc to very small amounts. Sorta funny how that works. like everything has a invisible number and if they add up to above my limit I am puking Makes eating annoying sometimes lol.  OH bit of a thought, I RARELY make almond milk cause it leaves a almond paste behind that I only have one use for and if sales at the bakery are bad I am better off just buying the stuff at the store and drinking in moderation. ANYWAY I use the almond paste mixed with coconut flour, left over almond butter batches, xylitol, apple sauce, and a tsp of a extract of choice to make the almond butter mini muffins for my bakery. They are a bit of a product of recycled foods lol. Taste great, super moist, grain free, mostly sugar free, and I can eat them no problems...they also freeze for months.   Love making them with our pirate butter (butter rum), Cheese cake butter (dairy free cheese cake extract in the almond butter) or any of the others for that matter.  
    • Did you get any of your vitamin and mineral levels checked for deficiencies?  You don't have to be Celiac to develop deficiencies.   Peripheral neuropathy may be caused by deficiencies of B12, copper, vitamin E, B6, B1 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4208100/ Not dreaming can be caused by B6 deficiency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11883552 Tachycardia may be caused by deficiencies of B1, B12, vitamin C http://www.livestrong.com/article/503879-vitamin-deficiencies-racing-heart/ Ehlers Danlos can be helped by calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and others https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15607555 And that funky color of your colon, melanomas coli, vitamin E deficiency https://www.researchgate.net/publication/22087649_Ceroid_enteropathy_and_vitamin_E_deficiency IMHO, doctors would rather treat the symptoms than cure the real problems. Hope this helps.

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
