This pamphlet is a die cut beige box. The front cover has the lettering "Sapco Brand" at the very top. Underneath, there is a drawn illustration in the shape of an oval containing a brown potato with the lettering "Genuine Imported" above it. Below the illustration, there is a description of various uses for the potato flour that says "For puddings, milk soups, fruit soups, fancy puddings, gravies, etc. IT cannot be excelled. This potato flour is unequalled by any other in purity and taste." There is a drawing of a six pointed star with TRADE on the left and MARK on the right; it has the number 33 in the center. The back cover is a replica of the front cover with the exception that the title and other descriptions are in Swedish. The inside pages each contain various recipes that use potato flour as an ingredient. On page 15, the last page, there is a paragraph explaining the rules for puddings and the general rule for potato flour. There is also a paragraph explaining the different uses potato flour has as a cleanser.
