Tapioca Starch/flour

I was just at the store looking for tapioca flour for a recipe and all they had was tapioca starch - is it the same thing? What about potato flour/starch?

tapioca starch and flour are the same, but potato starch and potato flour are *not* the same. (one comes from cooked potatoes, one from uncooked, and they behave very differently. I don't remember which is which at the moment, but use whichever recipes tell you to use and don't substitute between the two.)

The problem with potato starch and potato flour is that there is also a product called "potato starch flour", which I believe is the same as potato starch.

I knew recipes called for this product, but I didn't know what it was til I traveled and saw it on the shelf in a supermarket, then looked it up on the internet. Swan's makes it and calls it "Potato Starch Flour". Until I saw this I just thought there was a lot of confused terminology floating around.

The Ener-g product that I buy is also called "Potato Starch Flour". Really confused me at first!
