Growing potato raw material

​Some of us might us still remember encountering starch in the form of potato flour, a white powder that our grandmothers used for getting the right consistency when she cooked strawberries. Maybe she also used potato starch when she would strengthen our gandfathers' shirt collars.

Today the use of starch has risen sharply and fills a variety of functions in millions of products from diverse industries.​

It's the starch that makes light yoghurt creamy and the sauce thick enough, it is starch that makes newsprint goes to press and plaster mass moderately sticky.

And, perhaps, starch may very well come to replace oil in many fossile based products in the future.
