    Tapioca flour?

    Primal Fuel
    Is Tapioca flour paleo? I need a alternative to coconut and almond flour as both are quite expensive.

    Yes, it is. Another alternative is coconut flour.

    It is. It's pretty good to use when you want a light-textured result.

    It is almost pure starch, so no. Not low in carbs.

    It is very inexpensive and worked very well for the taco shells I made. You cd. bend them like wheat flour tacos and the cosistency was much the same. Good luck. Due to the rather high carb content I don't use it for myself but my family enjoyed....

    Eat meat, vegetables, and fruit instead of baked goods.

    depends what you use it for? i use tapioca starch as a binder for meatballs/meatloaf and only need about 1-2 T for a pound of meat.

    i use rice flour to dust fish before i pan-fry it.

    but yeah, i don't bake with any of this stuff.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
