Tap'PD® Tapioca Fiber Source
Tap'PD® Tapioca Polydextrose is sourced from tapioca that is extracted from the roots of the cassava plant. Cassava root is a highly versatile crop, earning it nicknames like the "Rambo Root", the "Drought, War, and Famine Crop," and "Bread of the Tropics." It doesn't require nutrient-rich soil and can tolerate difficult conditions like drought and climate change.
Additionally, it can be harvested when needed so farmers do not have to wait until the end of the growing season. While other major food crops face challenges, cassava's high resilience makes it favorable as a source of tapioca fiber.
