It turns out a mixture that keeps the shape well and at the end of cooking is not much different in appearance from finely chopped potatoes. However, such a product is not at all like potato by its taste. It is to hide this that food additives and condiments are used. The main ingredient of such "improvers" is the infamous glutamate of sodium.
