FAQ about tapioca pudding

What are the small balls in tapioca pudding called?

Small balls in tapioca are called boba balls. They are naturally white but can be bought in many artificial colors. In most cases they are sold cooked and dried and cooking can double their size and makes them transparent.

What are the tapioca balls made of?

Tapioca balls are made from tapioca flour, which is mixed with water to form a thick paste and shaped into balls using a sieve. Tapioca flour is obtained by rinsing and grinding tapioca tubers. The wet pulp is then squeezed through a strainer to produce a starchy liquid. When all the water evaporates during heating, pure tapioca flour remains.

Is tapioca pudding high in carbs?

Tapioca pudding is high in complex carbs, which makes it a good food choice for the digestive tract, not only because of the slow absorption of the carbohydrates, but also because of the high fiber content that improves digestion and prevents constipation.

Can tapioca pudding be frozen?

Tapioca pudding can easily be frozen. Once frozen, the structure will change a bit, but flavor will pretty much remain the same and it will still feel creamy in your mouth. If properly frozen, it can last up to three months in the freezer.

Is tapioca pudding constipating?

Tapioca pudding is not constipating. It is actually very beneficial for digestion. Its fiber makes it an excellent choice when it comes to balancing digestion, as it prevents constipation. It is easier to digest than wheat starch and is recommended for people who have a sensitive stomach or IBD.
