I recently came across a connection at a facility that processes feild peas. The peas are milled to a fine flour and hulls removed, then starch and protein is separated.
Anyway we can buy this powdered starch for around 11 cents a pound, so my question is has anyone tried to mash pea starch or any kind of powdered starch?
I'm thinking cook it and convert it with enzymes. Seems like a cheap source of starch and no milling. Hydrating it may be a pain but I'm hoping the grist dehydrator will do the job.
Anyone got any thoughts?
