Production & Sourcing
Initially, tapioca starch is extracted from the cassava root. This starch is then mixed with water and subjected to a precisely controlled cooking process, typically involving steam or hot water. During this process, the starch granules swell, absorb water, and undergo a structural change. Once the starch reaches a specific level of gelatinization, it is quickly dried to halt further molecular alterations.
