Food industry: Baked products, rice noodles, batter mix, etc
Non-food: adhesive, textile, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, biodegradable packaging, paper industry.
Native tapioca starch is gluten-free, has a bland taste, low protein content, and a consistent market. It is a good substitute for potato starch and can be used as a thickener, stabilizer, binder, and emulsifier in a variety of recipes. Tapioca starch is also readily available and typically more affordable than potato starch.
