Tapioca is made from the cassava plant. First, the plant is harvested, and then the toxins found in the plant are removed. The starch thus obtained is processed into several forms most popular of which are tapioca pearls. They are totally free of protein and gluten and are considered as a staple food in many places.

Cassava flour is the main component of tapioca flour/starch. It is obtained after the washing and pulsing process. The moist pulp is pressed, removing the remnants of water and with it the starch. The extracted liquid is evaporated leaving behind a starchy residue – tapioca.
