Tapioca is a by-product of making cassava flour. It is very fine and has a consistency like wheat flour or powdered sugar. Also known by the name Gari.
Its peculiarity is that it swells (increases in volume) in contact with water. It has no special taste, it can be a little sour on the border.
The manufacturing process is medium and can take anywhere from two days to several weeks. It’s sometimes white, sometimes yellow, depending on whether or not you added palm oil.
Tapioca flour is known for its filling properties when puffed cold. In Cameroon, for example, it is called “saviour” because it is available at a low price, but also because it has the capacity to double in volume after being soaked in cold water.
