Tapioca is the starch extract derived from the Cassaca plant. It is native to South America. The extract is taken from the root of the plant. It was brought back to Europe by the Portugese and Spanish explorers and quickly became very popular. It is used as a gluten free food alternative. In health terms it is hypoallergenic and nutrient rich. It helps soothe the scalp whilst calming any skin irritations. It was said to be the saviour of food epidemics saving people from starvation in difficult times.
