Thrive Life offers 3 different kinds of potatoes: potato chunks, which are dehydrated, potato dices, which are freeze-dried, and mashed potatoes, which are flakes.
I often get questions about the 3 different kinds of potatoes, so I wanted to share them with you today.
Potato chunks are what you typically think of when you think of “food storage potatoes.” They are decent enough in soups, especially because they hold their shape well. However, they take at least 15-20 minutes of hard boiling to soften, and I personally don’t like their flavor much. They are cheaper than the potato dices, and some people really like them. They’re just not my thing. The ingredient list reads: potatoes, preserved with sodium bisulfate.
These are the freeze-dried potato dices, and I like them the best. I was hesitant to use them at first because they do soften quickly and I wasn’t sure I would like the taste. However, when this can was in my pantry I quickly found excuses to use them, and ended up enjoying their taste. I also especially love the ingredient list, compared to frozen fries and other forms of potato. You ready? The ingredient list reads: Potatoes.
This one’s pretty self-explanatory. You see packets of instant potatoes in pretty much all the grocery stores these days. I have to admit that the first time I tried these, I didn’t like them much. Then I realized that because I had prepared them without milk or butter for my husband who’s dairy-free, it was obvious why they were so bland. When I tried them again with dairy, they were better than the traditional store varieties. Also, I like to make these with Thrive Life chicken broth, some Chef’s choice, peppercorn, and some garlic powder, and then they taste fine being dairy free. I wasn’t a believer in instant potatoes until I learned how to use these. Now it’s what I do for Shepherd’s Pie, or just as an easy side dish for dinner. Again, I love the ingredient list. Just like the potato dices, the only ingredient is potatoes.
