Difference Between Tapioca Flour And Tapioca Starch:

Tapioca starch and tapioca flour are the same thing but one main difference between tapioca starch from tapioca flour is that tapioca is derived from the starch of the cassava plant while the flour is taken from the root of it. Both are hauled out from Manihot esculenta. This plant species is found in the Amazon, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and most of the West Indies.

Tapioca starch versus tapioca flour is only a consideration when you have no idea what starch selection you want to purchase.

Why Should I Buy This Product?

Tapioca is a starch extracted from cassava root (Manihot esculenta). This species is native to the North Region of Brazil, but spread throughout the South American continent. The plant was carried by Portuguese and Spanish explorers to most of the West Indies, and continents of Africa and Asia, including the Philippines and Taiwan. It is now cultivated worldwide.

Erawan's Tapioca Starch is pure, clear, flavourless, and elastic, which makes it ideal for thickening sauces, and providing stocks and soups with a little body, without affecting taste, colour or transparency. It is also gluten free.

Erawan's Tapioca Starch Flour has a vast array of culinary uses, and is still the main carbohydrate source in many cultures.

Like so many foodstuffs which are now globally ubiquitous, tapioca, the starch extracted from a variously named tuber (manioc, cassava, yuca, etc.) was introduced by the Spanish and Portuguese, from the New World, to their far-flung colonies.

Tapioca starch, used commonly for starching shirts and garments before ironing, may be sold in bottles of natural gum starch to be dissolved in water or in spray cans.

In various Asian countries, including Indonesia, China, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Philippines, Malaysia, and Taiwan, tapioca pearls are widely used and are known as sagudana, sabudana or shabudana (pearl sago). It has religious importance in certain communities and used as a staple food for fasting. The pearls (sagudana or shabudana/sabudana) are used to make snacks. Tapioca pearls are essential ingredients for Taiwanese Bubble Tea.
