So, what is ámidon de tapioca?

Tapioca starch, also known as "ámidon de tapioca" in Spanish, is a gluten-free and grain-free alternative to traditional wheat flour. It is derived from the cassava root, which is native to South America, and has a neutral flavor and fine texture. Tapioca starch is commonly used as a thickener in soups, sauces, and desserts, and is also a popular ingredient in gluten-free baking. It has a high carbohydrate content and is low in protein and fiber, making it a versatile ingredient for creating light and fluffy dishes. Additionally, tapioca starch can be used as a substitute for cornstarch in many recipes.
