So, what is tapioca-starch?

Tapioca starch is a fine, powdery flour that's made from the starchy roots of the cassava plant. It's a popular ingredient in gluten-free and grain-free baking, where it's used as a thickener, binder, and stabilizer. Tapioca starch has a neutral flavor and a slightly chewy texture, which makes it ideal for creating crispy coatings on fried foods or for adding structure to gluten-free breads and pastries. It's also used in Asian cuisine as a thickener for soups and sauces, and in desserts like pudding and boba tea. Tapioca starch is a versatile ingredient that can add texture, structure, and flavor to a wide variety of dishes.
