Also known as tapioca flour, tapioca starch is extracted from the root of the cassava plant. Originally, a native to the northern regions of Brazil, cassava are now grown worldwide and tapioca has become a staple food for many cultures. A staple for gluten-free cooking, it is one of the purest forms of starch foods. Predominately consisting of carbohydrates, it is low in saturated fat, protein and sodium. The starch is mainly used as a thickening agent for soups, sauces and gravies. It is similar in appearance to corn starch, but many consumers prefer tapioca starch over corn starch since corn is generally produced using GMO's and tapioca is not.
