Processing

These two flours are made from different parts. Tapioca is made from starch that settles in cassava juices. The process of making tapioca flour is usually called washing and pulping, then the roots of the cassava are grated and then rinsed. Meanwhile, cassava flour is not only made from sediment, but uses whole parts of the boiled yuca root and then it is dried and ground to turn it into flour.
