Farina or potato starch is a starch that is extracted from tubers, particularly potatoes. The potatoes are carefully washed then crushed to extract the starch. Once this is done, the starch is laid out to dry which produces the powder form loved by many around the world. Farina starch is clear and white in colour. It is a great binding starch with a thick texture, little to no foaming tendencies, and a clear neutral taste. Farina is a great starch option because it is refined which means it has little to no fat or protein. African farina is completely organic. It is also one of the healthiest starch options.
