The method and length of cooking potatoes affects both griddle cake dough and other uses for potatoes. The aim is to find the best cooking method for different variations of dry matter and starch content, for example.
Besides being an important food product in itself, the potato is the most important ingredient in griddle cakes, many snack foods and chips. The large variations in the constituents of potatoes can be a challenge for the producers. A recently developed measuring method allows better control of the important quality parameters.
