Amflora Potato

Amflora Potato is a GM Potato intended for industrial applications as potato starch which is better than the natural starch currently used. Natural potato starch is used for papermaking and other applications, and contains two constituent substances: amylopectin (80%), which is useful for industry, and amylose (20%) which often creates problems for industrial applications and therefore must be separated with chemical reactions that cost a lot of money. The Potato has been controversial in Europe.
