Tapioca starches provide consumers with the food and beverage benefits they demand, minus the qualities they don’t. Extracted from the roots of the cassava plant — a tuber native to Brazil and a global food staple — Ingredion’s tapioca starches can meet kosher, halal and vegan requirements and are non-GMO, grain- and gluten-free. What’s more, the neutral flavor profile and unique thickening properties of our high-performing tapioca texturizers are sure to deliver a sensory experience your customers will love.
Our cost-effective, easy-to-use tapioca starches can be combined with other starches, giving you options to achieve new functionalities you never thought possible. Whether you’re developing a crunchier snack cracker or reformulating a yogurt for a truer dairy flavor, our tapioca starches can help you create an unforgettable eating or drinking experience your customers will be able to see, taste and feel.
