Production & Sourcing
The process begins with washing and grating the cassava roots to extract the starch. This starch undergoes enzymatic hydrolysis, a process where enzymes break down the complex carbohydrates into simpler sugars, primarily glucose. The resulting solution is then concentrated and dried to create a fine, granulated powder, which is known as tapioca dextrose.
