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 flavor 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. When the roots have fully developed, they are harvested and processed to remove toxins. The starch is then extracted from the root by a repeated process of washing and pulping the mixture, then separating off the liquid. 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 discolors 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). Moreover, it never coagulates or separates when refrigerated or frozen. Use in combination with other gluten free flours for best results.

5 Reviews For "Tapioca Flour (Tapioca Starch)"

  1. Perfect Pie Thickener!

    by l-lynne on 07 Sat,2011

    This is my secret ingredient for thicking fruit pies! I use it combined with conventional wheat flour (about 1:1), adding more Tapioca flour for sour fillings such as rhubarb and sour cherry. It doesn't get gummy and rubbery like corn starches, it doesn't get white and milky like flour alone, and those unpleasant little white gummy bits from pearl tapioca are a none-issue. My only heartbreak is

  2. Great quality, wonderful gluten-free sta

  3. tapioca flour

    by the old cajun on 11 Mon,2010

    I used some of this to thicken a batch of jam that wasn't setting uo and wound up with rubber. There is a definite learning curve with tapioca flour. I need to try making aspic with this to keep it from melting in the Arizona heat.

  4. Great tasting rolls

    by Chess on 09 Fri,2010

    I like this product for dinner rolls. It is light and very easy to use.

  5. It's a good product, just ...

    by Murielle Vich on 01 Sat,2010

    It's a good product, just don't follow the hint on the package about how to use it as a corn starch substitute! It says 2 tbsp for 1 tbsp of corn starch : that is way too much!
