Starch noodles are a category of Asian noodles produced by partial gelatinization of the starch from mung bean, maize, sweet potato, potato, tapioca, and canna or flour from rice and buckwheat. The gelatinized starch serves as a binder that enables the development of a dough that can be shaped and cooked. Dried starch noodles have crystalline structure with white to brown color depending on the substrate. They have slippery chewy texture and are bland tasting readily absorbing the flavor of the ingredients in which they are cooked. It is ideal for gluten-free diets for management of celiac disease.
