About Organic Manioc Starch Tapioca Flour
Manioc starch - is also known as Tapioca Starch Flour. Tapioca flour is made from the tuberous root of the Manihot esculenta plant (cassava), which is native to Central and Southern America. This woody shrub is more commonly known as manioc, cassava, or yucca, and in addition to being the source of manioc flour, it is also used to produce tapioca and it is used whole in recipes in which it may be fried, steamed, or stewed. Manioc flour has been used by Native Americans for centuries, and many Latin American cultures call for it in traditional recipes.
Manioc starch/tapioca thickens translucent. It is used in soups and porridges. It is widely used in Asian cooking (where westerners would usually tend to use cornflour or cornstarch to thicken). It is particularly good for frozen goods and is great for adding shine and gloss to a finished fruit sauce or glaze.
