Tapioca Pearls

Tapioca Pearls Products from AKFP

Tapioca pearls are made from the starch extracted from the cassava root.  Tapioca pearls are available in a wide variety of sizes ranging from 1 mm to 8mm.  Tapioca pearls are very hard spheres and must be soaked well before cooking.  The soaking process allows the pearls to absorb water and increase in volume.  Tapioca pearls are generally opaque white when dry, but when they are placed in boiling water they become translucent and give a “Fish -Eye” appearance.

Tapioca Pearls can be used in place of Tapioca starch, only if they have been ground into a powder by method of a food processor.
