HOW U.S. DEHYDRATED POTATOES ARE MADE

HOW U.S. DEHYDRATED POTATOES ARE MADE

Flakes, flours, granules and pieces: All U.S. dehydrated potato products start out as sound, whole U.S. potatoes—the fluffy, white-fleshed potatoes that consumers love. Several washings and steam-peeling under high pressure prepare the potatoes for subsequent steps on their journey to becoming premium U.S. dehydrated products.

Granules and flakes: Washed and peeled potatoes are sliced, precooked when appropriate and then cooled to gelatinize their starch and ensure a mealy, non-sticky texture in the rehydrated product. Further processing steps might include additional cooking, drying and grinding or ricing.

Slices, dices and shreds: After peeling and trimming, potatoes are cut to suit their finished-product form and are then washed and blanched prior to final drying. U.S. dehydrated potato products are made from 100% whole, high-quality U.S. potatoes.
