Potato starch

The potato plant tuber contains so-called leucoplasts, also known as starch granules. In the initial starch extraction process, the potato is ground so that starch granules emerge from the destroyed cells. The starch is then washed and dried into powder. The by-product is potato pulp, or potato press pulp. This is obtained after water is squeezed out and can ultimately be fed to cows and cattle.
