Tapioca Starch Supplier

Ettlinger Corporation is a leading tapioca starch supplier in the food ingredients industry. The tapioca family of ingredients primarily consists of various products derived from the cassava plant (Manihot esculenta). Cassava is a tropical root vegetable that is widely cultivated for its starchy tuberous roots. Tapioca ingredients are produced by processing and transforming cassava into different forms, each with its unique characteristics and culinary uses. Key products are Tapioca Starch, Tapioca Pearls, Cassava Flour, and Waxy Tapioca Starch. Tapioca ingredients are valued for their versatility, neutral flavor, and gluten-free properties. They play essential roles in both traditional and modern culinary practices, and their various forms allow for a wide range of culinary and industrial applications around the world.

Tapioca Starches Applications

Tapioca starches work well in a variety of formulations and recipes, making it a functional ingredient in the following applications:

  • Pie
  • Meat
  • Soup Thickener
  • Pudding
  • Gravies
  • Snacks
  • Pet treats
  • Wafers
  • Crisps
  • Molding
  • Adhesives

Benefits of Tapioca Starches

The most obvious benefit of tapioca starch is that it is gluten-free and wheat free. This makes it an appropriate option for people who have gluten intolerances but still want to bake or add thickeners to their recipes.

Tapioca starch contains no protein, making it a good choice for those trying to cut their protein intake. Most other types of starches and flours contain at least some protein. According to Fine Cooking, low-protein starches are good for cooking soft–rather than crusty or crunchy– bread, cakes, and biscuits.

Tapioca is also a great substitute for Potato Starch. Because of the volatile nature of the Potato Starch market, we see several customers switching over to Tapioca. Many customers feel that Tapioca Starch works better in their formulas in comparison to Potato once the switch is made. Currently, Tapioca is readily available and at a much lower cost than Potato.

Tapioca starch has a bland, neutral taste. This is an advantage when cooking, as adding tapioca starch won’t affect the flavor of a recipe. Because of its neutral taste, tapioca starch can be used in both sweet and salty dishes without a problem. Other gluten-free starches and flour, such as buckwheat flour, potato starch, and some corn starches will change the flavor, color, or texture of dishes. Tapioca starch will not.

The market for Tapioca has been very steady over the years, especially in comparison to other starch markets such as Potato or Rice. The price and supply of Tapioca Starch have been consistent over the years, making it a cost-effective starch option for your unique needs.
