Tapioca originates from “Tipi’óca” in Tupi-Guarani (the original South-American Indian language). It means “clustering” and was used because hydrated Tapioca flour clusters together under heat without using butter or oil.
Tapioca flour is made from the Cassava root, also known as Yucca, Mandioca or Kasbi. It contains many fibres and is gluten free. Cassava is originally from Middle and South-America, used by Indians and currently also one of the most important food sources in Africa.
Tapioca is a good alternative to bread and wraps, gluten free and a source of fibres. They are also a good option for vegans, and for kids with certain allergies. Our Tapioca workshops for kids are always a big success.

How to prepare tapioca?
Preparing your Tapioca is very easy with our ready to go flour. Pre-heat a cooking pan without butter or oil. Put in our hydrated Tapioca flour and just watch it cluster together in a few minutes. Turn it around and add your toppings.
Tapioca flour has a neutral taste which allows you to be creative with toppings. Follow us on Instagram for ideas.
To get you started we also offer Tapioca workshops on location. To add to your inventory we produce Tapioca flour in various healthy colour variants with a subtle taste. Contact us for more information.
