Why Tapioca Starch

Bland Taste from the Nature 
: Tapioca Starch
Tapioca Starch is widely known as the most “bland flavor” starch in the world.

Tapioca starch has always been prized for its bland flavor and it commands a premium price when modified to eliminate the
textural problem and receive specific properties according to food products concept requirements.

Flavor can be greatly influenced by the type and amount of
starch used. Ideally the starch should contribute no flavor.
Any flavor contribution is normally considered to be a negative. Of
the starches under consideration, tapioca contributes the least amount of flavor.

Mostly food manufacturers prefer modified tapioca starches over any other starches because of its excellent flavor
characteristics.
