What exactly are the Tapioca Pearls made out of?

Posted by YenChuan on February 19th, 2020

Tapioca is a starch that is extracted from cassava root that is naturally gluten-free and typically made into flour and edible pearls the raw tapioca pearls, which are often black but can also be transparent or white, get cooked in boiling water until they become soft. The pearls are then kept in a simple syrup mixture so that they become sweet and remain chewy until they are ready for use. The cooked pearls are then put in the bottom of a cup and then filled with various chilled drinks like fruity teas, icy smoothies or milk-based tea and coffee beverages as well as ice. The drink is then shaken to mix the ingredients and it is sealed.

Information on Tapioca Pearls.

The chewy balls aren't wildly high in calories: A 1.1-ounce serving of uncooked pearls contains 68 calories (drinks typically contain anywhere from 1 to 2 ounces of the tapioca pearls). But because the pearls are typically soaked in a sugar mixture, their calorie counts are high. The delightfully chewy drink originates in Taiwan. In the 1980s a by tea manufacturer decided to put the pearls into a cup of sweetened iced tea.

Information on fruit juice syrup.

Fruit juice syrups are very versatile. It can use in breakfast or can be drizzled on top of pancakes, waffles, yogurt, etc. They're the perfect setting for many desserts like ice cream, cakes, custards or even a bowl of fresh fruit. You can add a splash of fruit juice syrup to your favorite cocktail or to your sparkling water for a taste change or more sophisticated beverage. Adding sugar with a pinch of lemon juice, you can make your own fruit juice syrups or you purchase any variety from store-bought or homemade fruit juice that you can enjoy.
