Hi there

I see that a lot of you here avoid tapioca flour being new to all of t his I was wondering if there is some connection wiht it or is it just a personal choice??

Tapioca is gluten free. I don't have any problems with it. I can't speak for why others may be avoiding it.

Definately no problem with tapioca. I eat daily huge amounts. I don't know who has a problem with tapioca and why.

Tapioca is fine--gluten wise.

I'm one who is intolerant to it--it makes me very sick to my stomach. I avoid it :)

If it weren't for tapioca I'd be having a really hard time. It's one of the most commonly used gluten-free flours that I can handle.

I finally pin pointer what I was feeling sick from still (tapioca flour/starch) and stopped eating things that contained it and felt sooooo much better. It was almost like I was eating gluten but at times worst. The only thing that is bad is that pretty much all gluten free recipies and alot of really good gluten free foods have tapioca in them :(

When you go gluten you start to notice other things that bother you. Sadly tapioca is one of mine.

Do you feel sick when you eat things with tapioca? If not then you are good to go with tapioca foods and recipies :)
