Convert liquids with high fat content into powder! This is an off-white flavourless powder derived from tapioca (cassava root) that is a food starch used to absorb and thicken fat. Tapioca Maltodextrin is used in Modernist Gastronomy to create powders from ingredients such as truffle oil, extra virgin olive oil, Nutella, caramel, and peanut butter. It is used as a fat replacer in desserts, cheeses, dressings, and sauces. Tapioca Maltodextrin is also used to increase the volume of dry mixes and frozen foods.
