Potato peelings steamed

During the processing of potatoes into French fries, puree, starch and other potato products, valuable by-products are created. One of these are potato steam peels. The potatoes are washed upon arrival and then treated with steam. The skin is released by steaming. The skin and part of the starch layer directly under the skin are then removed by means of brushes. The steam treatment ensures that the starch is gelatinized.
