AKFP Tapioca Starch is a white powder derived from the roots of Tapioca tubers and is used for one or more of the following purposes: as thickener, filler to add to the solid content of food preparations as well as pharmaceutical products, binder to contribute to the mass of food products and as stabilizer. As a high-quality starch, tapioca starch is characterized by a high water retention capacity.
Tapioca Starch can be substituted for Potato Starch and Corn Starch. Tapioca starch does not contain any impurities to mask light flavors. It produces a clear film and gel and provides a lower viscosity while hot.
Noted for good texture and moisture regulation as well as good expansion and taste regulation, tapioca starch can be used as a fat replacer as well as for many other applications in the food industry.
Tapioca and its derivatives are used in a variety of food applications. Tapioca starches are widely used in baking applications, frozen foods, dry mixes, soups, sauces, gravies, snacks, instant foods, noodles and meat and fish dishes. Tapioca starch does not require high heat to thicken quickly and produces sheen, which is an attractive attribute for fruit pie filings. Tapioca starch is quite versatile and can also be used in a variety of baked goods and extruded snacks.
