Tapioca starch/tapioca is a starch extracted from the roots of the manioc bush. The extraction of tapioca is relatively complicated. The manioc roots are actually poisonous and are rendered non-toxic by the process of extracting manioc flour. To do this, the root is peeled, grated and soaked. This mass is then roasted and dried in the oven and the flour is ready. Tapioca is a by-product of this process.
