Title: PROCESS FOR MAKING DEHYDRATED POTATO PRODUCTS
Abstract:
A process for making dehydrated potato products from potato flakes so that they can be sulfite-free by mixing the potato flakes with a sufficient amount of water to increase their moisture content to a predetermined level, lowering the temperature of the moistened potato flakes to a temperature and for a period of time sufficient for retrogradation of free soluble starch contained in the potato flakes, reducing the size of the potato flakes in a manner to minimize breakage of potato cell walls, and drying the resulting potato product. The dehydrated potato product can be reconstituted without using a boiling liquid to make a dough for french fries or to make a mashed potato product.
