Production & Sourcing
Harvesting: The process starts with harvesting mature, certified-Organic cassava roots. These are tuberous roots that grow underground.
Cleaning and Peeling: The harvested cassava roots are thoroughly cleaned to remove dirt and debris. They are then peeled to remove the outer skin.
Grating: The cleaned and peeled cassava roots are grated into a fine pulp.
Pressing: The grated cassava pulp is then pressed to extract the liquid. This liquid contains both water and starch.
Settling and Separation: The liquid is allowed to sit in large containers. During this time, the heavier starch particles settle to the bottom, while the lighter water rises to the top.
Dewatering: The separated starch slurry is then dewatered to remove as much water as possible.
Drying: The dewatered starch is spread out and dried. The goal is to remove all remaining moisture.
Milling: Once dried, the starch is milled into a fine powder. This results in the familiar white tapioca starch that is used in cooking and food manufacturing.

Organic tapioca starch is used globally in various cuisines and is not specific to any particular culture or region. Its organic designation reflects a commitment to environmentally friendly farming practices, which is a consideration of increasing importance worldwide.
Organic tapioca starch, much like its conventional counterpart, is naturally gluten-free, making it a valuable ingredient for individuals with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease. Additionally, it is suitable for those with grain or nut allergies. However, it is primarily a source of carbohydrates, so individuals following low-carb or ketogenic diets should use it in moderation.

Main producing countries and Harvest time
The main producing countries of Tapioca Starch are Brazil, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia.
