Potatoes USA unveils a not-so-secret ingredient for the patisserie or boulangerie seeking the innovation to stay ahead. US crisscut potatoes, standard potato flakes and standard potato granules were used to enhance these pastries. Breads, scones and muffins turned out softer, with just the right texture and chewiness. Baked breads also gave off a stronger, pleasant fresh-baked aroma. For taste, US potatoes helped flavours mixed in certain pastries to stand out, like cheese, pandan, fruits and ube. Baking with US dehy also provided a higher yield for less of the product. Potatoes USA has a lot to offer in the making of tasty dreams.
