So, what is tapiocastärke?

Tapiocastärke, also known as tapioca starch, is a highly versatile food ingredient derived from the cassava root. It has a fine powdery texture and neutral taste, making it an ideal thickening agent for sauces, soups, and pie fillings. Its unique ability to absorb and retain moisture makes it a popular choice for gluten-free baking, where it improves the texture and structure of baked goods. Tapiocastärke is also commonly used in Asian cuisine, where it adds a chewy and translucent texture to dishes such as bubble tea and boba desserts. With its many culinary applications, tapiocastärke is a must-have pantry staple for any home cook or professional chef.
