Processing
The dehydration process begins with the use of OPC grown potatoes that are washed, peeled, trimmed and cut to specific sizes if used for DH dice/slice applications. The potatoes (for flakes) are cleaned, water-blanched, dried to 8% or 9% moisture and then packed in to poly lined Kraft bags or totes. Dehydrated dices are packed in 1/40 lb poly lined cases. Dehydrated slices are packed in 1/25 lb poly lined cases. The native potato starch is extracted from high quality, high solids Northwest grown potatoes and is dried without modification.

Product Characteristics and Dehydration
Potato flakes are dehydrated mashed potatoes made by applying cooked, mashed potato to the surface of a single-drum dryer and drying to the desired final moisture. The dried sheet is milled to a specific density. The largest size flake is a 5/8" milled flake and the smallest is a course ground flour.

Potato Processing Additives and Functions

Mono & Diglycerides – This reduces stickiness and is a required additive.

Sodium Bisulfite – inhibits browning.

Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (SAPP) - inhibits graying, color control.

Citric Acid – Processing aid for emulsions stability.

BHA, BHT – to inhibit oxidation – for preserving flavor.

Color, Spice and Vitamins – added as required.
