No, a potato is a potato. If you are curious about instant mashed, Idaho Potatoes are clearly labeled on the back on the gluten free varieties.
I believe so.
starch is a sugar...
Starch is added to white fish to make the crab sticks. That starch may contain flour and gluten.
You should just leave it out... or use corn starch. I think it would be best to use corn starch considering that's the closest thing to it! Actually, something even better would potato flour!!! Use this and it will be 99.9% the same. (Potato flour is, as well as potato starch, gluten free!)-Melissa
Modified corn starch does not contain gluten. If the label says "modified food starch", that could either mean corn or gluten to make sure you call the number on the package to find out for sure.
no.it contains starch...
Thickeners in the 1400 -- 1450 range are made from starch and therefore may be derived from wheat. If wheat derived, thickeners contain very small levels of detectable gluten, and so are considered not gluten free. If derived from maize, potato, tapioca or rice then they are gluten free. Thickeners may also be called modified starch or dextrins (thickener 1400). If the source of the thickener is wheat (or another gluten-containing grain), then it should… Read More
Yes and No. Corn does not contain any gluten. However, corn is a major cross-reactor, if you are suffering from a gluten sensitivity.
Yes, you can substitute potato starch for potato starch flour. However, you may not substitute potato flour for either potato starch or potato starch flour.
Yes, it is. I had the same question. I was concerned about the "modified food starch" that is in the list of ingredients. This is basically hidden gluten, unless it specifies that it is modified corn or potato starch. I googled it and all of the sites say it is gluten free.
Yes. 100 grams of potato will contain about 15.44 grams of starch and 2 grams of protein. (Please see the link.)
This all depends on which brands you would buy. On the most part the answer would be yes. They still contain grain, but not all those grains contain gluten. Normally it contains buckwheat, rice, tapioca starch, potato starch, xantham gum, etc. These are all gluten free, but some people are still allergic to some of these ingredients. I myself cannot have buckwheat so I am required to stay away from some bread. I recommend that… Read More

There are a couple methods to thicken foods in a gluten free way. Corn starch Arrowroot starch Gluten free flour mix (containing any of the following GF flours - rice, potato, tapioca, almond, coconut, teff, millet, quinoa)
Most recipes for potato bread call for some wheat flour which would contain gluten. One needs to check the list of ingredients on the package of purchased potato bread to determine whether it was made with wheat flour.
I think the addition of starch to a recipe keeps the gluten in the flour from activating or not as much so the end product is more tender. Corn starch should have the same affect.
Some do. Look for ingredients like "pregelatinized starch" or "modified food starch". The only way to be sure is to get a clear answer from the manufacturer.
Both sweet and normal potatoes contain starch but it depends normal one contain less as compared to sweet.
potato bread is gluten-free
No, it comes naturally in things like potatoes, rice, maize, cassava and wheat.
As it is commonly made on equipment used to process wheat, although it lists only "food starch" in its ingredients which by itself would not contain gluten (which is protein while starch is carbohydrate), it may have tiny amounts of gluten from the wheat residue on the equipment.

Not all brands of baking powder are gluten-free. Baking powder is made from baking soda, cream of tartar (a bi-product of wine production) and a "moisture absorption agent" which is usually, but not always cornstarch. Other starches including potato starch (gluten-free) and wheat starch (contains gluten) can be used in baking powder products.
Is starch the same as gluten.... I have to eliminate starch from my diet....does that mean gluten free or not?

becouse it contain starch which is polysccaride
Potato has more starch
potato stores the starch in its root.
gluten is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. Many processed foods contain smaller amounts of gluten from ingredients such as "modified food starch," so there may be gluten in foods such as catsup, beer, and ice cream. Also, foods that do not naturally contain gluten, may have some gluten as a result of being processed at a facility that makes other foods.
salt and vinegar potato granules, potato starch, sunflower oil, salt and vinegar flavouring, salt, potassium chloride, colour
All tubers(like potato,tapioca,yam),all cereals (rice, whet,barley,corn) contain plenty of starch and in fact starch is their major ingredient.

Yes, potatoes have a lot of starch in them. Save for water and the skin (which contains almost the entire nutritive value) a white/tuber variety of potato is almost entirely starch.
Just because they are a starch, like bread (which contains wheat)... a potato is a potato. It is a root, a vegetable. Not a manufactured food containing wheat.
A potato is a vegetable that has a lot of starch in it.
