There are many types of starch, and the characteristics and uses of each starch are different. So is the sweet potato starch and potato starch. Although the production environment of sweet potato and potato is the same, and the processing technology of sweet potato starch and potato starch is also basically the same, however, due to the difference in raw materials, the difference between sweet potato starch and potato starch is also very large. Then what's the difference between sweet potato starch and potato starch?
Potato starch and sweet potato starch
1. Sweet potato starch and potato starch has different characteristics:
|Stickiness||Potato Starch > Sweet Potato Starch|
|Transparency after gelatinization||Potato starch > Sweet potato starch|
|Water absorption||Potato starch > Sweet potato starch|
|Molecular particle size||Potato starch > Sweet potato starch|
|Gelling function||Sweet potato starch > Potato Starch|
|Aging level||Sweet potato starch > Potato starch|
|Gelatinization temperature||Sweet potato starch > Potato starch|
2. The usages of sweet potato starch and potato starch are also different:
Sweet potato starch has strong water absorption. Unique usage: making snacks, fans, noodles, etc. Sweet potato starch has a darker color and coarser particles, which makes it difficult to control the viscosity after gelatinization, so it is mostly used to make Chinese-style dim sum. Due to its smooth texture and toughness, it is also very suitable for fans, noodles, and sweet potato flour often used when eating hot pot is made with it. Sweet potato starch can also be used for frying. Marinated pork ribs are coated with coarse-grained sweet potato starch, after frying, the taste is crisp and the granular appearence can stimulate appetite.
Difference usages of sweet potato starch and potato starch
The stability of potato starch is relatively strong, but its water absorption is a little worse. Usually it is used for thickening when used, so as to ensure the original taste of the ingredients. Potato starch has high transparency and can be used for sauces. The sauces produced are transparent in color. And potato starch has high whiteness and strong gelatinization. Adding potato starch to printing and dyeing slurry in large dyeing and weaving mills and paper mills can make the dyed cloth and paper have good color and quality excellent.
