Tapioca chips are a traditional Kerala evening snack that can be easily made at home. Tapioca chips are made from the roots of the cassava plant. Tapioca is rich in starch and has a lot of calories too. These include a very low level of saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. It is also a rich source of dietary fiber, “good” cholesterol, and protein. Furthermore, tapioca contains members of the vitamin B-complex, including pantothenic acid, folate, and B6, as well as iron, manganese, calcium, copper, and selenium.
