ayurvedic notes
Tapioca will continue to absorb water even in the colon, leading to dryness and constipation. Make sure your tapioca is fully cooked to avoid this. Also, tapioca is very sticky and may end up forming a large mass in the cecum, leading to stagnation of the bowels.
Tapioca is actually made from tree resin. Like most resins tapioca is sticky.

Why is tapioca listed as being both tamasic and sattvic? Is that possible?

- Jess, Allen park, MI, 10-03-12
Yes - tapioca is sattvic in the same milk is sattvic - it nourishes ojas, has wholesomeness and purity. However, it is heavy, and that makes it tamasic as well - like milk.
