From the AVEBE Press Centre

The AVEBE 2011/2012 starch campaign started this week with the supply of starch potatoes to the factory in Gasselternijveen.

The factories in Germany will begin processing on 15th August and the factory in Ter Apelkanaal will start on 22nd August.

Due to a continuous high demand for AVEBE products the campaign is commencing early.

So far, the growing season for starch potatoes has been somewhat erratic. Due to the drought in the spring followed by frost and locally hail a part of the potato crops will not achieve their maximum yield. The recent rainfall has been helpful for the development of the crops. However, the growing conditions in August are now of great importance for the size of the final harvest. Also the weather in September and October is critical for a successful harvest operation.

On the 6th July 2011 The Daily Express ran a front page story criticising both food retailers and the UK Government for their salt reduction strategies.

Is this an initial sign of the salt reduction trend easing down in the UK?

This post will describe how a baker can replace fat by up to 30% in a standard cake recipe whilst maintaining the same batter viscosity using Etenia™ Legato™ potato starch.


As found in Sainsbury’s and other specialist supermarkets, Farina is another name for native potato starch often aimed at consumers in consumer friendly pack sizes.

Potato Starch is readily used in Asian and African cooking as a standard flour-type thickener.  Potato Starch also offers a GMO free, Gluten Free & E-Number free alternative to flours and modified flours in conventional baking, soups and sauces.

AVEBE has just the solution for you! ETENIA™ 457 is a potato based specialty starch which provides excellent creaminess and texturising properties in fat-free, low and high fat yoghurts.

ETENIA™ 457 outperforms other ingredients currently on the market and is cost-effective. ETENIA™ 457 offers you a truly natural taste along with halal, kosher and non-GMO certificates. ETENIA™ 457 has excellent properties so the ingredient is very easy to handle and is designed to fit existing processes. It is cold-soluble, stable at low pH, and also resists shearing and heat.
