Wondering what tapioca balls are made of? Grown in the tropics, the cassava or tapioca plant produces a fleshy edible root stock. A nutritious starch is extracted from cassava and formed into "pearls". Bob's Red Mill Small Pearl Tapioca contains no sulphites or other additives. Tapioca pearls are practically flavourless on their own but soak up the flavour of what they are cooked or soaked in.
Small Pearl Tapioca is used to make traditional old-fashioned tapioca pudding. It can be used in any recipe requiring tapioca as an ingredient or can be used in desserts and sweetened drinks, and as a thickener in puddings, pies and jellies. Also try it varied with fruit or chocolate. There simply is no comparison. For a variation, add fruit or chocolate. Cooked Tapioca Pearls are also used in boba tea or bubble tea, a popular Asian drink. For something different, try our Small Pearl Tapioca pearls in savoury dishes like vegetable or cream-based soups and dumplings.
A nutritious starch, extracted from the tapioca plant, this pearl tapioca is all-natural, containing no sulphites or other additives.

Bob's Red Mill
For over three decades, Bob has been committed to providing people everywhere with the best quality foods available. His passion for health and belief in taking care of one another is as strong today as it was when he first started the business with his wife, Charlee, all those years ago. Bob plays a fundamental role in the daily operations of the business and his enthusiasm and "honest-to-goodness" approach are shared with every one of his employees. It's this passion for providing the very best nutritional whole grains that has helped make Bob's Red Mill one of the leading name in health foods across the globe.
Preserving Nutrition Through Tradition
To make superb whole grain flour, no modern technology can match the Old World engineering of a stone mill. Bob's beautiful stone grinding mills are much like the ones used during early Roman times. Unlike high-speed steel rollers, our quartz millstones ensure the most nutritious parts of the whole grain remain, so we can pack wholesome goodness right into your bag.
Because the millstones grind at a slow speed and cool temperature, the inherent nutrients and flavour of the grains are preserved, a production 'secret' that seals in the freshness and brings you wholesome, quality foods, just as nature intended.
