Made from yuca, a plant common to South America, this starchy, slightly sweet grain-free flour is extremely smooth flour, which makes for a great thickener in sauces, soups and pies since it never discolors and contains no discernable taste or smell.
Tapioca flour can also be used as a coating for frying recipes such as french fries or nuggets, for making pizza crust, and for cookies or pastries when mixed with other grain-free or gluten-free flour.
This quality makes it one of the most versatile of the gluten-free flours. It has quickly become a staple in gluten free baking and can even be used to replace corn starch.
