Extracted from Manioc, tapioca is a starch.  Now cultivated worldwide,

It is cultivated as an annual crop in tropical and subtropical regions for its edible starchy tuberous root.  When dried to a powdery or pearly extract, is called tapioca.

There are several forms that, commercially, tapioca is processed into.  These forms are: hot soluble powder, meal, pre-cooked fine/coarse flakes, rectangle sticks and “pearls”.  Pearls are the most widely used and most widely available shape having sizes ranging from around 1 mm to 8 mm in diameter.
