Arrowroot vs Tapioca

Answered on August 19, 2014

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?

I'm not scared of corn (not just the starch) myself, I eat quite a bit of it.

Potato starch >= rice starch > arrowroot > tapioca >= corn starch, imo.

Flavor-wise, I once made a switch out with Tapioca in place of Arrowroot and used a bit too much and didn't like the results. I think arrowroot is more neutral, where tapioca has some interesting bitterness.

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