The potato processors offer a wide variety of dehydrated potato Pellets for foodservice and manufacturing. These products are remarkably convenient, delivering fresh potato flavor and nutrition without washing, peeling, slicing, shredding . Once rehydrated, they cook up as firmly as freshly prepared potatoes, which wins them favor with consumers who appreciate their real potato identity, flavor and texture.
Use dehydrated potato slices, dices and shreds in any formulation that calls for potatoes: soups and stews; potato salads; hash browns; and casseroles, such as scalloped or au gratin potatoes. Food manufacturers can also explore new possibilities for potato pieces in dried and canned soups and stews, and in the extruded pellets used to make some snacks.
Rehydrate dehydrated potato pieces by covering with water, heating to 88°C and simmering until tender. Generally, rehydration time varies between 10 and 20 minutes depending on product size, specification and supplier. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the dehydrated product you’re using, as rehydration specifications may vary.
