This might need some expansion.

I have several recipes for potato bread that call for potato flakes/buds and
they come out very well.  The potato material is used in addition to regular
flour along with extra liquid or are first reconstituted.

Potato flour is made from whole, dried potatoes, so I don't understand why
there would be a difference in making bread with it compared to flakes or
how it could substitute for regular flour since it doesn't have the
gluten-forming proteins.
