Now, biscuits and noodles made from potatoes showcased at expo in India

Ever heard of biscuits made out of potatoes? You can taste them at a stall set up by India’s Central Potato Research Institute (CPRI) at the five-day Pride of India Expo organised by the Indian Science Congress at Lovely Professional University (LPU).

Munch on them and you realize they taste as delicious as the ones manufactured out of maida by any good bakery in town. Not just biscuits, but the CPRI staff have also put up stalls of noodles, semolina and porridge, all made out of potatoes.

“Cook them like normal noodles, suji and dalia and you will get almost the same nutritional value,” said Yogesh Gupta, senior technical officer, CPRI.

CPRI officials said farmers should start setting up potato processing plants using the technology which they were offering.

Gupta said, “We also have a technology for dehydrating cubes of potatoes, which can be soaked in water when required. They retain their normal size and weight soon.”

Experts say noodles, porridge and semolina made from potatoes are gluten-free. Because of an increase in wheat allergy, these products already have a huge market.
