Tapioca flour, also known as tapioca starch, is a starchy white flour that has a slightly sweet flavour. Tapioca is naturally low in sodium, is a gluten free alternative to wheat flour, and suitable for all lifestyles including paleo and vegan.
Tapioca is extracted from the South American cassava plant. When the roots have fully developed, they are harvested and the starch is extracted from the root by a repeated process of washing and pulping the mixture, and separating off the liquid.
Tapioca is extremely smooth flour, which make for a great thickener in sauces, pies and soups.
1.5 tsp tapioca flour : 1 tbsp wheat flour
2 tbsp tapioca flour : 1 tbsp cornflour
Handy Hint: Tapioca flour can sometime behave similar to cornflour but will become gelatinous at times once cooked. Best to use in combination with other gluten free flours.
