Production of potato starch with low waste

  • Roy Shaw
  • W. C. Shuey


The use of fine grinding and air classification of dehydrated potatoes with sieving and minimum washing to produce potato starch is described. A substantial reduction in the amount of waste water over that required by conventional wet milling procedures was obtained. The procedure proposed would reduce wastes by 90%.
