Description

Organic Tapioca Flour is also known as Tapioca Starch.

Organic tapioca flour is extracted from the root of the cassava plant.  This versatile flour is a useful alternative to traditional wheat flours and is perfect for thickening soups, custards and gravies.

Tapioca flour is most commonly associated with South American and Asian cuisine where they use it to make delicious flat breads, puddings and crisp-like snacks.  Tapioca flour is really helpful when you are baking flours which don’t naturally contain gluten such as organic coconut flour or organic chickpea flour due to its binding properties.

Try making your own cosmetics with tapioca flour if you like being creative with natural products.  Tapioca flour comes into its own as a staple ingredient in deodorants, loose face powders and face masks.  For a basic face mask mix 20g of tapioca flour with 20g of organic neem powder and create a paste with water.  Smooth it on and leave it for 20 minutes before rinsing – and come out glowing!

If you like experimenting with speciality flours try our organic tigernut flourorganic almond flour or organic buckwheat flour.
