Certified: Gluten-Free Kosher

Our certified gluten-free potato starch, also known as potato starch flour, is used to thicken sauces, gravies, soups, puddings, and pie fillings. Naturally gluten-free and flavorless, potato starch is also ideal for adding moistness and a fluffy texture to baked goods. Potato starch has a lower gelatinisation temperature than cornstarch, making it a great last-minute thickener for soups and sauces.

Potato starch is made from the extracted starch of peeled potatoes, which is washed out and processed into powder form. Potato starch is bland, making it perfect for use in both savory and sweet recipes, as it won't affect flavor.

Since potato starch thickens more quickly than grain starches, it's best to use it toward the end of cooking. Sauces thickened with root starches like this one appear more translucent than those thickened with grain starches, which typically creates an opaque look. Potato starch should never be boiled since it will lose its thickening ability.

Unlike grain starches like wheat flour and cornstarch, potato starch is kosher and permitted for Passover.

“Shipment came exactly when expected & I loved the packaging! Thank you!”

, High Point, NC May 13, 2014

“I can't say much about the product other than it is securely packaged, looks and tastes fresh.
What I can say is that is was shipped promptly, securely and I was suitably amused by the box labels.
I expect the product will taste just like potato starch is supposed to taste! But, that is a good thing ... anything else would indicate something wrong

“You guys are the best. I had to change my order after I had placed it. I found so many things I wanted I forgot to buy the item that brought me to your site in the first place. David responded almost immediately and my ENTIRE order was received quickly and accurately and even contained a surprise. I will definitely shop with you again. The customer service was great”

“Ordered components for a gluten-free flour mix--for the first time. The products got here quickly and in quality condition--love the zip lock closure so I Don't have to find another receptacle to put in the leftovers. My first attempt at using my mix was a big success. Looking forward ongoing business with Nuts. :)

“To Jeffrey and the NutsOnline Family,
As you know, today I received my first order from your company. I'm impressed that the order came on the day expected. Thank you! Along with a friend, we are in the infant stages of starting a "cupcake business". I just learned about potato starch and its use in baking. In exploring how to find this product, I came across NutsOnline...so glad that I did. As we continue with our baking journey, I'm sure we will be placing future orders. Thank you once again for great service!”

“Once again, the nutty company delivered as promised on time, with the order exactly as we ordered, and with a pleasant surprise included. I am absolutely amazed with the selection of products you have and will continue to check NutsOnline for the unusual items I cannot find near my home.

You're wonderful!”
