So, what is tapioca zetmeel?

Tapioca starch, also known as tapioca flour, is a fine, white powder extracted from the cassava root. It is a popular ingredient in gluten-free baking and cooking, as it is a versatile and neutral-tasting thickener. Tapioca starch is often used as a binding agent in gluten-free breads and pastries, and as a thickener in soups, sauces, and stews. It is also a common ingredient in Asian desserts, where it is used to create chewy textures in dishes like bubble tea and tapioca pudding. Tapioca starch is a good source of carbohydrates and provides energy for the body.
