Is tapioca starch considered paleo?

I'm looking forward to the answer. But whether "paleo" or not, tapioca flour is high in carbs, so not so good for people with insulin resistance.

Does anyone know if there is really a difference? I found a recipe that called for either. Tapioca is quite a bit cheaper. I wonder if it is interchangeable for baking but not for thickening. Any ideas?

Starch is starch. I exchange potato starch for anything that calls for arrowroot, tapioca, or corn starches.

3 quick questions: What's your stance on fermented soy sauce? It's practically ubiquitious over here in Singapore) for Chinese food, and it's one of the largest obstacles when it comes to meals with my family. (The other is, of course, fats, but... (more)

Fermented soy is okay, in my book. What Matt said. Don't let it hold you back. I'm allergic (read: sensitive) to both soy and wheat, and soy sauce never bothers me.

I recently made a pancake/ flatbread thing for my 18 month old daughter using ground roasted chestnuts ( not water chestnuts) and egg yolks, which she loved. I don't know anything about chestnuts. Are they paleo? Ok to give to a baby on fairly... (more)

Chestnut flour is definitely Paleo. It is higher in carbs, but I do not see that as a negative, especially for a child. Tapioca is also good (made from cassava, a tuber) and starchy. I would limit almond flour to occasional indulgences due to... (more)

Does anyone know anything about Chebe Pizza crust mix? It's made from manioc flour (tapioca), which I believe comes from the yucca plant. Seems paleo enough...yes? Thanks

I use chebe all the time. It's based on a Brazilian dish called pao de queijo (pronounced 'pown je cay-jo')... a tapioca-flour based cheese bread. We've had some difficulty getting the mixes here in Houston, and can't get the frozen stuff... (more)

I bought some tapioca flour to thicken stuff with, but I fear I shall have to discontinue these 'safe starch' experiments; it is clearly making me sick. I also had a brief attack of nausea after eating some rice a while ago. Sugars don't seem to... (more)

There is 0% possibility that you lack the enzyme to break down tapioca starch. Try eating a white or sweet potato and see what happens. 99.99999% that nothing negative will happen. Your 'tapioca flour' probably has some industrial waste product... (more)

tapioca pearls, made from yucca root/cassava, are (i think) considered a safe starch, but is eating them safe? 400cals/100g of them a day to fight infection ala PHD... when they contain no fiber? i'm just wondering.

Tapioca is considered a safe starch by the Jaminets, and since they are the coiners of the term, I would call that definitive.

Is see Tapioca in some products and I believe it is used a lot in Gluten free products as a thickening agent. Is it Paleo or should we stay away?

It's a starch that comes from the cassava root, so it is technically "paleo," though it's awfully processed. It's one of those foods that isn't blatantly poisonous but definitely isn't optimal as a dietary staple, and as I recall the root itself... (more)

OK what's the story with tapioca flour? We are looking at using it for our cheat pizzas which we try to keep as cheat free as possible. Anyone know anything about this stuff?

I'd say to go ahead with the tapioca starch. I understand the point of view of others who like to use meat for the crust or nothing at all, but gosh if you're going to eat some carbs, it might as well be non-toxic and non-fructose laden, and... (more)
