Tapioca Flour, also known as tapioca starch, is a gluten free, white starch extracted from
cassava root. When the roots have fully developed, they are harvested and processed to
removed toxins. The starch is then extracted from the root by pulping the mixture, then
separating off the liquid that is then dehydrated. Organic tapioca flour is a mildly sweet
flavoured white flour that is great for gluten free baking, especially good in cakes and biscuits
and wonderful pie crusts. Because it has a very smooth texture it can also be used to thicken
sauces. Used to replace wheat flour and corn starch, it is also a substitute for arrowroot in
many recipes.
