Tapioca starch is a carbohydrate product that is very rich in native starch. It also has excellent binding properties. Tapioca starch is extracted from the roots of the cassava plant. The roots are first cleaned, grinded, then air-dried. The starch is then washed from the material, and dried again. The result is a fine white powder with a characteristic flavour and aroma. Tapioca starch can be modified in many ways to influence its properties. For more information, please contact us.
