Native Tapioca Starch is a food grade product refined from tapioca roots. Starch is an important constituent in many foods. It plays an obvious role in achieving the desired viscosity in such products as cornstarch pudding, sauces, pie fillings and gravies. It plays a more subtle role in cereals, and baked products such as biscuits, muffins, popovers, pastry, cake and bread. It is used as a water binding and texturizing agent.
