Boba is tapioca starch, which comes from the root of the Cassava plant. Before cooking, tapioca balls are dry, powdery and crumbly, like a very dry dough. However, it is actually about 20-25% water. This makes storing the tapioca very important because if improperly sealed, tapioca’s water content will evaporate and the resulting tapioca will be hard and only partially-cooked, not the texture we are looking for!
* Tapioca ball must be chewed before swallowing.
* It is strongly advised that children under the age of 5 are not permitted to eat it.
* Due to temperature difference, condensation is normal.
* Food grade desiccants will absorb some caramel and moisture, may cause tapioca turn white. This is normal.
