HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS
Tapioca starch comes from the cassava plant, which is a root vegetable. Cassava is a healthy source of carbohydrates. Tapioca is considered a healthy starch because it is low in cholesterol and unhealthy fats. Coconut oil contains a lot of medium chain triglycerides, which are metabolized differently than normal saturated fats and can have therapeutic effects on several brain disorders, like epilepsy and alzheimers. Nearly half the fatty acid content in coconut oil is lauric acid, which can kill harmful pathogens like bacteria, viruses and fungi when you eat it.
