Tapioca fiber may be in your so-called keto-friendly products, but is it actually a keto-friendly ingredient?

Today we’re going to talk about tapioca, and I’m going to answer the question, “is tapioca fiber keto-friendly?”




Where does tapioca come from?


Tapioca is a starch that comes from the cassava plant. 




It’s actually quite high in carbohydrates. In fact, the carbohydrates from cassava flour are 25% more than white flour. 




If we compare tapioca flour to almond flour, this is what we find:




 • 1/4 cup tapioca flour — 27 net carbs 


 • 1/4 cup almond flour — 3 net carbs 




There is an ingredient found in many so-called “keto-friendly” products called soluble tapioca fiber. Soluble tapioca fiber is the same thing as prebiotic tapioca and organic non-GMO tapioca fiber.




Soluble tapioca fiber is a big source of IMO, which is a common sweetener. I used to think this was fine, but I no longer recommend it. More recent studies show that IMO has the same glycemic effect as glucose and dextrose. It’s actually worse to use than sugar. If you want to eat keto-friendly foods and stay in ketosis, you may want to stay away from tapioca flour and tapioca fiber.
