Product Description

Size:Pack of 4

Tapioca flour, also known as tapioca starch, is a starchy white flour that has a slight sweet flavor to it. Tapioca flour is an alternative to traditional wheat flours and has a variety of uses in baking. The flour is made from the starch extracted from the South American cassava plant. When the roots have fully developed, they are harvested and processed to remove toxins. The starch is then extracted from the root by a repeated process of washing and pulping the mixture, then separating off the liquid. Tapioca flour helps bind gluten free recipes and improves the texture of baked goods. Tapioca helps add crispness to crusts and chew to baked goods. Tapioca flour is an extremely smooth flour, which makes for a great thickener in sauces, pies and soups since it never discolors and contains no discernible taste or smell. It can also be used to replace corn starch (use 2 Tbsp tapioca flour for each 1 Tbsp corn starch). Moreover, it never coagulates or separates when refrigerated or frozen. Use in combination with other gluten free flours for best results.

I use this flour to make Pão de Queijo, Brazilian cheese bread. For years I've used Yoki both Polvilho Doce - (Sweet) and Azedo (sour) as this was the way I learned whilst living in southern Brazil.

When I had a difficult time finding these products (my local Brazilian store downsized their inventory), I found this at a whole foods retailer. I really hesitated to use it because it's not easy to for me to change a tried and tested recipes. This is especially true when feeding a very picky little guy.

I am delighted with the results of this flour. It actually out preformed the other brand and I cannot tell, nor can any member of my family tell the difference. It rises better and it's a bit more flavorful. I've never had a failed batch of cheese bread from Bob's Red Mill. It might be because it's fresher. Another reviewer suggests keeping this refrigerated. We keep one canister out on the cupboard and the rest we freeze. We go through it pretty quickly in the canister, we've not experienced any real issues with the one in the canister on the cupboard.

Our family isn't necessarily "gluten free" but "wheat free" and processed foods free. We dropped processed wheat flour years ago out of our diet. Tapioca flour and Pão de Queijo was the only bread we could eat until I started getting better ideas from a fitness board. If one is trying to drop processed flours, wheat or gluten, or become "low carb" this stuff comes in really handy.

Children love cheese bread. It's gooey and cheesy and warm. There are several variations on the internet. There are just as many variations in Brazil and with each padaria.

At about $8-$9, WAY over priced. Fortunately, I caught this before purchasing. You can get 4 bags for $13-$14 on here and elsewhere. This product should not be in the add-on program at this price.

Tapioca Flour has become an essential ingredient in my household. I use it in almost all of my gluten free recipes for baking, both for sweet treats and breads/pizza crusts. I don't know how it does it, but it certainly adds a taste that I love.

I also love how I can get 4 bags at once and it is quite a bit cheaper than in the store.

As a sufferer of celiac I have been searching for quality breads and pizza crust for quite a while now and have decided that tapioca and tapioca/rice flours are the best for making most savory bread products, particularly pizza. Tapioca makes a great crispy/chewy crust that is the closest to real pizza that us gluten-free folks are likely to get. At 80 ounces for just over 12 dollars (or less than 12 if you use subscribe and save) this is a great value. Bob's Red Mill has led the way on the gluten-free product front, their gluten-free grains and flours are tested using ELISA which is a highly sensitive way to detect gluten in a product. Thus, you can feel secure knowing that this product isn't going to make you sick. My one compaint about this product is true for most (or all) Bob's Red Mill products, I don't like the packaging. Tapioca flour is quite fine and can make quite a mess. Bob's Red Mill's crinkly plastic package is hard to open (you should definitely use a scissors or perhaps a sharp knife) and even more difficult to securely re-seal. I usually put the leftover flour in a tupperware container for less mess and to ensure that bugs are going to get into my flour after I open it up. All in all a good product that I rely on for much of my gluten-free baking needs.

I recently learned I was gluten intolerant and began the quest to find gluten-free flours that would work (with xanthum gum, as a binder) to make my favorite recipes. I knew it would take a blend of flours, but it took me just a bit of work and reading to realize that tapioca flour, while costly, is the key to getting a nice brown color on baked gluten-free items. My regular gluten-free flour recipe, which I love, uses mostly rice flour, a little potato starch, and tapioca flour (about 1/4 of the total flour amount). Without it, my baked goods don't look (or taste) too good. With it, they're so much better. Hope this helps others trying to bake with gluten-free flour!

What can I say... it is what it ought to be and it's a good price buying it by the box like this. I buy this regularly for mixing up a gluten-free flour. Just be careful pouring it out. Tapioca is very light and sticky at the same time. I've had a couple instances where it didn't want to pour out in a smooth stream, then *poof* there's a pile and tapioca starch rising all over the place. No fault of the brand, though. Just thought I'd mention a characteristic of the stuff if you've never used tapioca flour/starch before.

I use this product in a blend of flours that I found, of all places on land of lakes website.

[...]

I love it and use this blend all the time. Amazon has it at a great price, and it ships directly to me, what could be better. Totally recommend this product, and through amazon.

Just a head up, sometimes you might see this reference in a recipe as 'tapioca flour' or 'tapioca starch' they are interchangeable. Meaning they are one and the same. Potato flour, and potato starch ARE different, however.
