Is Tapioca Dextrin a Sugar?
Dextrin fiber is a hydrolyzed starch and is gluten free when it is made from tapioca, corn, arrowroot, potato, and rice. Like other starches it is eventually converted to sugar in your body. However these glucose molecules are linked in chains and break down slower than sugar does in your body, helping to regulate metabolism. This keeps you from experiencing a sugar rush and then an inevitable crash. Tapioca dextrin
In certain instances Dextrin is made from wheat when processing falls short of removing the gluten proteins. “Wheat” would then be labeled as an ingredient so be sure to check nutrition facts if you have wheat intolerance. This makes tapioca flour a great alternative for anyone with a gluten allergy or sensitivity to nuts and grains.

Processing of any supplemental ingredient is crucial and sourcing from companies here in the US ensures quality. If processed incorrectly the cassava plant can produce toxic cyanide, although this is extremely rare, cases in Asia have been reported in the past.
The average American adult in the U.S. only consumes about 15g of fiber each day according to the UCSF Medical Center . It is recommended that you consume 25-30g each day.
