Shafi Starch is a gluten-free thickener and stabilizer used in multiple industries. It is derived using a rice or tapioca base, adds a feeling of “chewiness” to its applications and contributes towards better taste and texture. It contains a large amount of carbohydrates that slowly breaks down in the body.
Tapioca Starch is an excellent way to thicken sauces or texture meat, especially if a producer aims to limit the protein content in the end product. This also results in a soft, rather than a crusty texture. Furthermore, since Tapioca itself is rich in carbohydrates and starch content, tapioca starch can be a good source of energy that would be slowly released in the body over time.
Tapioca Starch has a wide variety of culinary uses and is particularly popular with Thai dishes. The starch is also used for baking breads and snacks.
