Potato Flakes Production Cost Analysis 2020
Potato flakes, which is better known as instant mashed potatoes, are potatoes known for going through a commercial process of cooking, mashing, and dehydration to yield a packaged convenient food, which can be reproduced by adding hot water or milk, producing an approximation of mashed potatoes. They are available in many different flavours. Potato flakes can also be constituted from potato flour, but the method is made tougher by lumping. A key characteristic of instant mashed potatoes is that it is in the form of flakes or granules, eliminating the chunkiness. Granulated forms are generally reserved for institutional or restaurant use.
Potato flakes are most widely found in stores in the United States as well as in Canada. Potato flakes have substantially more sodium than fresh potatoes and have significantly less dietary fibre. The biggest difference is the loss of vitamin C; however, some products may be enriched to compensate.
