I was perusing our local asian market yesterday and found sweet potato starch. Has anyone used this in place of regular potato starch? TIA!

Since the starch in sweet potato is different from that of ordinary white potato, I'd think it would behave somewhat differently. However, that's not to say it can't be used. It might just boil down to preference.

Guess someone will have to be the guinea pig, try it in baking, and let us know how it turned out. I'm supposed to be allergic to white potatoes, but not sweet potatoes. I love sweet potatoes. You are fortunate to live near an Asian market.

I'm also intolerant to nightshade vegetables, which included the potato. I sub arrowroot for potato starch in recipes. I have been looking at the bags of sweet potato starch and wondering how I can incorporate it into my baking. Hmmm.

My chef used sweet potato flour when we hosted a gluten free dinner last fall. He made them into ravioli. Didn't get to try them because of the dairy. Everyone liked the taste, said it was kinda nutty flavored perfect for fall.

I've only used the flour, but according to many posts on this board, it seems starches are more interchangeable than flours. I'd have to guess it'll probably work fine, though you may need to tweak something slightly.

:P I too am interested in using sweet potato flour - Found a recipe at http://milkforthemorningcake.blogspot.com/...tta-breads.html

and tried it - Sweet potato pitta breads - both of us liked it. The recipe calls for both cooked sweet potato and the flour as well. I didn't have any flour so i subsituted corn starch for the sweet potato flour and used brown sugar instead of date sugar. I did not expect them to be so small; As far as the recipe i read rolling it to 3/4 inch thickness but I would try it thinner next time as thin as I could up to1/4 or 3/8 thickness if possible. Although they turned out great keep in mind this recipe as followed creates sweet potato pitta minis. I am going to try to find the flour and work with it and put it in this recipe again. Personally sweet potato recipes I have made have all turned out great and is so easy to wash and nuke a potato and then just peel off the skin if your in a hurry. i am going to try it in a pizza dough soon- we'll see how it turns out!

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
