Potato-based extruded snacks are extremely popular across the globe and can be produced in a wide variety of shapes and flavours. Expansion gives the specific mouthfeel that many consumers enjoy.
This is where potato starch comes into its own due to its neutral taste and high peak viscosity, which allows for greater expansion.
Used in recombined potato chips, where it may be combined with de-hydrated potato flakes, potato starch delivers the desired texture and crispiness.
At AKV, we select our starch potatoes with care, processing them with pure water. This is why our premium potato starch is known for its high viscosity, making it an ingredient of choice for extruded snacks.
