Tapioca pearls

From: $3.70

Tapioca pearls are also known as boba and sago in some cultures. It is produced by passing the moist starch from cassava root through a sieve under pressure. Pearl tapioca is a common ingredient in Asian desserts such as falooda, kolak, tapioca pudding, and in sweet drinks such as bubble tea, fruit slush and taho, where they provide a chewy contrast to the sweetness and texture of the drink. In the Philippines they use it for it for “magtataho” and is a very common street food.
