Tapioca (cassava sago) - starchy groats, which are obtained from the roots of the plant Manioc edible or Manioc sweet (aka manioc, cassava,tupi-guarana, yucca). Root tubers of cassava are used not only to obtain tapioca, but also eaten boiled, fried and dried.
The homeland of cassava is considered to be the areas of modern Brazil.
The starch contained in tapioca is rich in choline, which is important for normalizing blood cholesterol levels, as well as B vitamins, which are necessary for the nervous system to function. It also contains phosphorus and calcium - minerals important for bone tissue. The starch contains potassium, which removes excess fluid, normalizes blood pressure and improves the functioning of the cardiovascular system.
The benefits of tapioca are that it is practically fat-free and gluten-free, so it is suitable for baby food and for people with gluten intolerance.
Since the calorie content of the product is quite high, if you add a small amount of starch, for example, to porridge, you can quickly get satiated for quite a long time.
