I've seen a few recipes that call for potato flour. Is that the same thing as potato starch, or is it something else? Thanks.

no, potato starch is the starch of the potato. Potato flour is the whole dehydrated potato made into flour.

Okay, so it occurred to me AFTER I posted this to do a search for potato flour in case anyone already asked this. I see they're the same. Thanks.

Really? I just found three old posts that say it's the same thing. Now I'm confused.

I think that if you're asking in terms of general Pesach recipes, then the same thing is meant.

There may be a technical difference in the terms as Liba states, but generally people giving over recipes don't differentiate and use both terms for the Pesach "potato starch" used in recipes.

Hi Op, I am a brit living in the states.
in the UK, it is called potato flour
in the US it is called potato starch - and as with everything else in the USA, it comes in packages about 5 times the size!
it is exactly the same!
