Sweet Potato Flour

  • 1 cup weight = 180 grams
  • High nutritional properties enhance baking performance and give bakery goods a chewy texture and increased browning capabilities. Sweet potato flour, which has a yellow-orange hue, imparts its colour to baked items and has a sweet taste that complements recipes containing chocolate, molasses, spices and such. Usually well tolerated by food-allergic people, even those with multiple allergies.

Store in: an airtight container in a cool, dry place
How to use: Root and tuber starches should be part of a flour blend, up to 25 percent.
Watch out for: Too much of this flour can produce a gummy result
