Did You Know?
Tapioca flour or Tapioca starch- is derived from the Cassava root (Manihot esculenta) found in India. Tapioca is a starch extracted from cassava plant. This species is native to the north region and central-west region of Brazil, but its use spread throughout South America.The plant was carried by Portuguese and Spanish explorers to most of the West Indies and Africa and Asia.Tapioca is a staple food for millions of people in tropical countries, it provides only carbohydrate food value, and is low in protein, vitamins and minerals.Tapioca flour can be found in many gluten-free products. It’s a good option for allergen-free baking at home.It’s also an alternative to white flour for thickening soups, sauces, and pie fillings.
The root is usually 1-2 pounds in weight and is rough, elongated, and brown in color. The flesh of the tuber is white and very high in carbohydrates. However, this sweet-tasting flesh should only be consumed after proper cooking. It is a favorite food of many vegetarians, since it is a pure starch food that is high in protein(for a vegetable), and comes in different culinary forms, including dried flakes, sticks, and pearls that must be soaked before consuming so they regain their volume. This makes it a very useful food that can be included in a wide variety of dishes.
Tapioca is enjoyed throughout the world and is relied on as an essential part of certain cultural diets due to its unique composition of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds. These include a very low level of saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. It is also a rich source of dietary fiber, HDL or good cholesterol, and protein.

Tapioca is almost pure starch, so it’s almost entirely made up of carbs. It contains only minor amounts of protein, fat and fiber. One ounce (28 grams) of dry tapioca pearls contains 100 calories. Due to its lack of protein and nutrients, tapioca is nutritionally inferior to most grains and flours. In fact, tapioca can be considered as “empty” calories. It provides energy with almost no essential nutrients.
Tapioca is almost pure starch and has very limited nutritional value. However, it’s naturally gluten-free, so it can serve as a wheat substitute in cooking and baking for people who are on a gluten-free diet. Tapioca is a dried product and usually sold as white flour, flakes or pearls.
Starchy liquid is squeezed out of ground cassava root. The water is allowed to evaporate, leaving behind the tapioca powder. This can then be made into flakes or pearls.
It can be used as a thickener for soups, sauces and gravies. It’s cheap, has a neutral flavor and great thickening power.
