Tapioca Flour vs. Tapioca Starch
Tapioca flour and tapioca starch are the same thing; the names can be interchanged
The Perfect Thickener
Tapioca flour is one of the most popular thickeners. It thickens at a low temperature and retains its consistency when frozen, making it easy to use in many recipes. Tapioca flours thicken so quickly that it can sometimes be used to correct the thickness of sauces right before serving.
Is Tapioca Flour Gluten-Free?
Yes. Although the cassava plant is very starchy, it’s also naturally gluten-free, which makes tapioca flour a common ingredient in all kinds of baked goods.
