Dancourt Tapioca (Arrowroot) Starch 1KG (10)
Tapioca Flour, also known as tapioca starch, is a non-gluten white starch extracted from cassava root. When the roots have fully developed, they are harvested and processed to remove toxins. The starch is then extracted from the root by pulping the mixture and separating off the liquid – which is then dehydrated. Tapioca is a mildly sweet flavoured white flour that is great for gluten-friendly baking, especially good in cakes and biscuits and wonderful pie crusts. Because it has a very smooth texture it can also be used to thicken sauces. Used to replace wheat flour and corn starch, it is also a substitute for arrowroot in many recipes.
How to Use:
Tapioca flour, or ‘starch,’ is especially popular in gluten-friendly recipes and is suitable in sweet or savoury cooking due to its subtle flavour. In baking, it is best in combination with other non-gluten flours as it binds with the other ingredient and improves the structure and texture. It is great in bread, cookies and cakes, and helps create delicious crisp pie crusts.
Tapioca flour is an excellent thickener in sauces, hotpots, pie fillings and soups. To substitute Tapioca Flour for arrowroot as a thickener or in baking, replace one for one. Tapioca can also be used in recipes to replace corn starch at a ratio of 2 tbsp. of tapioca flour for each tbsp. of corn starch required.
