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


Wondering what tapioca balls are made of? 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. Tapioca balls 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. Buy online today and 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. You can view a full breakdown of our tapioca pearls nutrition facts in the tab above.

I grew up eating Tapioca pudding and over the years our family has tried different brands. Bob's Red Mill Small Pearl Tapioca is the best. I ordered extra bags for other family members to try. i am very happy with Bob's Red Mill.

Small Pearls
I used this tapioca a few years ago and forgot where I found the recipe. Do not like the large pearls and that was all I could find or the instant and do not like that either. Got your email with the small pearl tapioca for sale and jumped on that. Found your Old Fashioned Recipe for tapioca which is the recipe I used back then and I am going to try it soon. I remember it was delicious and I cannot eat any other tapioca now. So glad I was able to get your small pearl tapioca. Thank you.

I live in a small community south of Dallas, Tx. We no longer go to the big city to shop. The only kind of tapioca available is instant. It leaves a lot to be desired. Thank you BRM for carrying the pearl tapioca. The taste and texture brings back the good old days. This is good food!

Interesting alternative to commercial tapioca
This is an interesting alternative to commercial tapioca. It needs to be soaked prior to the cooking process, due to the larger size of the pearls. Fun to serve the family, and tastes great. I don't think it would be appropriate for making homemade pie--the kind where you place some tapioca into the bottom pie crust (as a thickener) under fresh fruit, sugar, and butter. It would not soak up the juices as well. But it is great for puddings.

Fab tapioca
I love this tapioca- it makes a fabulous light dessert flavored with vanilla, chocolate, or fruit. It’s a terrific pie thickener without the extra calories and sugar of common thickeners like corn starch or flour.

Because it is used for my special needs dog. It is her only starch in her homemade food with her meat and supplements. It digests well, and goes through her system. She produces too many red blood cells and her blood is somewhat thicker. This tapioca is the most important item in her diet. No other starch will digest with her. She is active and happy. I am so thankful that you supply this product!!!!!.

i use this tapioca for making flavored tapiocas- like chocolate, cinnamon, or with fruits- and i also use it as thickener for baked fruits- pies, compotes- instead of cornstarch. it's a great quality of tapioca. so glad i could get it in bulk.

Does anyone have a recipe for pumpkin tapioca?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2017
i bought a bag of the small pearls because i saw recipe using it as a thinking for a dish prepared in a pressure cooker. i thought there would be more recipes. how do i use the pearls to thicken other things? i want to use the small pearls
Leolinda P on Mar 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not a pie maker but my daughter, who is, uses Minute Tapioca for thickening. It's my understanding that that is made from pre-cooked tapioca flour that readily breaks down and so thickens. If you don't mind having the "pearls" in your finished product then possibly Small Pearl Tapioca would also thicken things, but I don't know for sure. Maybe preparing food in a pressure cooker (or slow cooker?) would serve to break down the pearls and provide more thickening power. Perhaps do a quick search on-line? However a very delicious use for Small Pearl Tapioca is for making Tapioca Pudding - as my 6'3" grandson will attest, so it is a frequently purchased staple for us.
How much pearled tapioca do I use instead of cornstarch, when recipe calls for 2 tsp cornstarch?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Unfortunately we don't have a conversion for that. In that application I would recommend using our Tapioca Starch. Tapioca Starch can replace Cornstarch at a 2:1 ratio.
