Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Flour
Tapioca Flour is a grain-free flour made from cassava root. It is a starchy, slightly sweet flour that is a staple for gluten free baking. It's also a good ingredient for thickening soups, sauces, and pie fillings.
Tapioca flour, also known as tapioca starch, is a starchy white flour that has a slight sweet flavour to it. Tapioca flour is an alternative to traditional wheat flours and has a variety of uses in baking. The flour is made from the starch extracted from the South American cassava plant.
Tapioca flour helps bind gluten free recipes and improves the texture of baked goods. Tapioca helps add crispness to crusts and chew to baked goods.
Tapioca flour is an extremely smooth flour, which makes for a great thickener in sauces, pies and soups since it never discolours and contains no discernible taste or smell.
It can also be used to replace corn starch (use 2 Tbsp tapioca flour for each 1 Tbsp corn starch).
