Small Pearl Tapioca is used to make traditional old-fashioned tapioca pudding, an all-American favorite dessert.


Grown in the tropics, the cassava or tapioca plant produces a fleshy edible root stock. A nutritious starch is extracted from cassava and formed into "pearls". Our Small Pearl Tapioca contains no sulfites or other additives. Tapioca pearls are practically flavorless on their own but soak up the flavor of what they are cooked or soaked in. They can be used in desserts and sweetened drinks, and as a thickener in puddings, pies and jellies.

Small Pearl Tapioca is most famous for its use in traditional old-fashioned tapioca pudding, an all-American favorite dessert. Try our delicious tapioca pudding recipe on the back of this package. For a variation, add fruit or chocolate. Cooked Tapioca Pearls are also used in boba tea or bubble tea, a popular Asian drink. For something different, try our Small Pearl Tapioca pearls in savory dishes like vegetable or cream-based soups and dumplings.

7 Reviews For "Small Pearl Tapioca"

  1. Good old fashioned Tapioca pudding

    by Bill on 06 Fri,2016


    Tapioca was a dessert favorite of mine when I was growing up over 60 years ago. My mother made it the old fashioned way. For the longest time I didn't eat it because that stuff they call Tapioca pudding in the stores is garbage. A few years back I started making my own and I looked for the proper recipe calling for beaten egg whites and soaking the pearls overnight. When I came across Bobs Tapioca in the store about a year ago I checked the recipe and it had everything except the raw pearls so the soaking time was much shorter. That is the only thing different as I use the raw pearls but this is actually one change I don't mind. I have found any Bobs product I have tried superior to others.

  2. It's like eating a cloud!

    by Tek the Mando on 05 Mon,2016


    I made Bob's tapioca last night for dessert, and this was the best tapioca I have ever had in my life. I've never made it with egg whites like the recipe calls for. I'll never use another brand again. This is top notch stuff right here! It was seriously like eating a delicious dessert cloud. Perfect!

  3. Tapioca Perfection!

    by Sydney on 09 Tue,2015


    Bob's Redmill tapioca is the best tapioca product that I have ever used. I was brought up by my mom using the "red box." The "red box" does not compare or even come close to this product. Bob's tapioca pearls make a wonderful tapioca pudding with great flavor and a light as air texture. The tapioca pearls are not big nor stiff like other brands. This tapioca produced pudding that was perfectly light and creamy. Well done Bob's Redmill! Your recipe for tapioca pudding on the label is perfection.

  4. Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Pudding = HEAVEN!

    by Christina on 06 Fri,2013

    Seriously the best tapioca I have ever made.|It has thickness and consistency of store bought "tubs" of tapioca but this is WAY BETTER!! I also have two of the red boxes in the cupboard that I don't want to use now. |It is soooo worth the time soaking the tapioca, stirring until it boils, and waiting for the end product. Delicious Cold and Hot.|Best Comfort food.

  5. Heaven!

    by Elle on 01 Thu,2011

    This is the ONLY tapioca to have. It is the really good old-fashioned creamy but elegant tapioca pudding you remember as a kid ... in a word: wonderful!!

  6. Wonderful

    by Tapioca Lover on 01 Sun,2011

    I tried this for the first time today. I've been looking for an alternative to the "red box" and was delighted with the results. While it takes a little longer to prepare it was worth it. Very flavorful.

  7. Best tapioca ever

    by Gimmlette on 11 Fri,2010

    I love warm tapioca pudding. It was a staple when I was growing up and now, it's high on my list of comfort foods. The "red box" you get in the grocery has long been one of my pantry staples. Then I found Bob's tapioca. There is no comparison. Yes, it takes longer to make and, in a world where instant is too long, letting tapioca sit for 30 minutes before you start preparation can be a deterrent t
