Do you have the same question as most people around? 

What is this Tapioca that we are making chips out of?

Tapioca is neither a fruit or a vegetable but a plant-based root of cassava. The fact that the root is relatively easy to grow makes it a superfood and is sold as white flour, flakes or pearls. In India, the root is found majorly in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and a few parts of Andhra Pradesh, Assam and Nagaland. 

Let’s talk health benefits now!

If you are on a restricted diet, then cassava root is very suitable for you. The resistant starch is gut-friendly and feeds the friendly bacteria in your stomach, thereby making it non-inflammatory and prebiotic.

The minerals in Tapioca mainly contain Calcium and Iron. Calcium and iron are both important to your body. The former keeps your bones strong and the later is required to transport oxygen throughout the body.

Tapioca is very easy to digest, people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and digestive issues can make use of such benefits. 

The Gluten-free and Grain-free element makes it a great replacement for wheat. If you are into such a diet regimen then using tapioca flour would be the best option. 

The cassava root is a great compliment to your diet that is light on the stomach. While you are finding more about Tapioca, you can try out our wafer thin and healthy WABS Tapioca chips brought to you in four different seasonings.
