Dehydrated potato flour?

Commented on January 04, 2014

I've always had trouble eliminating grains from my diet, due to the fact that it's too hard to get enough calories without them, it's hard to get enough carbohydrates with just tubers and milk, and grains take like 5-10 minutes to make aposed to tubers which take almost an hour and a half total. However, when I was shopping yesterday, I saw some bobs red mill products, and I realized that there were bags of "stoneground potato flour", which is just whole skinned potatoes, which are boiled, dehydrated, then stone ground and packaged. I picked some up, and all I do is blend it with whole milk In a blender, and then I have a meal ready in like 2 minutes as apposed to 90 minutes. If I were to say have 800-1000 calories worth of this stuff per daywhich would make it my main starch source, would that be any different than having 3 or 4 pounds of potatoes per day?

Matt Lalonde recommends removal of potato skin.

Potato flour is different from potato starch. There's a big debate about the benefits of starch at Freetheanimal, with counter argument at thescribblepad. Paste and google.

I say: peel your spuds, boil/steam, and serve with plenty of butter and salt. If you want resistant starch then refrigerate them.

If you want convenience then accept that it will cost what you might not be able to afford.

The skins are what you want to avoid - they contain most of the solanine, which this nightshade's toxin. Potato skins may be tasty, but they're not healthy.

Microwave debate aside, you can steam them in the micro in about 5 min.

I don't know where you get an hour and a half to prepare tubers from? I eat a lot of potatoes and they are quite quick. Put a pan of water on to boil. While it is boiling peel a pound or two of white or red skinned potatoes. Chop into small pieces, put into the now boiling water, boil for 20 minutes or until soft enough to pierce with a fork, drain.

Now you can eat them hot, leave some to cool and eat them cold with mayo or whatever, or fry them in butter or beef fat - once they have been boiled the remaining ones are very quick to use again.

They would be different than having potatoes because of the lack of skins. Also, consider eating more meat and green vegetables and a bit less starch. Consider eating squash and sweet potato as well for a variety of vitamins.

Even though instant might be a bit less than strictly paleo, it sounds like it makes paleo possible for you, so it's a reasonable compromise to me.
