WHY DEHYDRATED POTATOES?
Dehydrated potatoes deliver all the flavor, versatility and nutrition of real, fresh potatoes because they are real potatoes, minus the water. In everything from soups and salads to ready meals and desserts, U.S. dehydrated potatoes are versatile, operationally efficient, hardworking ingredients and naturally gluten-free. Potatoes don’t get more value added than this. Around the world, manufacturers and foodservice operators choose U.S. dehydrated potatoes because of their unparalleled reputation for performance and quality.
QUALITY FROM THE GROUND UP
The high quality of U.S. dehydrated potatoes starts in the fields, where generations of experience combine with the long days, cool nights, rich soils and varied microclimates of potato-growing regions to produce consistent—and consistently flavorful—potatoes. The results: fresh real potatoes = real quality.
WHERE NATURE MEETS TECHNOLOGY
The advanced methods, technologies and stringent standards that processors use to make U.S. dehydrated potatoes are designed to maintain fresh-potato texture and flavor in the rehydrated product. It’s no wonder that the U.S. potato industry sets the pace for superior potato processing.
A POTATO FOR EVERY PURPOSE
U.S. dehydrated products build on the potato’s inherent versatility. Dices, slices, shreds, flakes, granules and flour—and foods made with them—appear on menus and buffet tables, in baked goods and snacks, on dinner plates and in the hearts of consumers worldwide. Whether adding flavor, enhancing nutrition, extending shelf life, improving texture or increasing dough yield, U.S. dehydrated potatoes get the job done.
POTATOES PAY BACK
Forget washing, peeling and boiling. U.S. dehydrated potatoes deliver maximum utility with minimum preparation. They store easily—no refrigeration needed—and go to work straight from the package. And because they’re easy to mix with seasonings both before and after rehydration, they’re perfect platforms for flavor innovation. U.S. dehydrated potatoes also save money: They’re concentrated and efficient to ship, have a shelf life of up to two years and yield about 5 kg of rehydrated product per 1 kg of dry.
TO YOUR HEALTH
Did you know that one medium skin-on potato contains 30% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C and as much as or more potassium than bananas; is also a good source of vitamin B6; contributes 8% of the recommended daily value of thiamine, 6% of the recommended daily value of folate, 6% of magnesium, 6% of phosphorous, 6% of iron and 2% of zinc—and all for only 110 calories and no fat, cholesterol or sodium? Even better, U.S. potatoes are naturally gluten-free and always have been. U.S. potato processors produce plenty of clean-label dehydrated options to help you deliver potato nutrition that label-reading consumers can really feel good about.
