meat 50-60% …. rice pudding 40-50% ?
that sounds odd ?
p.s. Tapioca starch – used as a binding agent in paints (yummy) … in dying clothes (mmm mmm) … glue making … soap … washing powder … dry cell batteries (!!!) … plywood manufacturing … to make paper … (anyone feeling queezy yet) and ……. it yields 95% ethanol for use as fuel !!!October 2, 2008 at 7:02 pm #83693AnonymousGuest

isn’t tapioca a pudding?October 3, 2008 at 8:38 am #83695AnonymousGuest
it can be yes 😉
when mixed with water it forms like a gluey substance – think like gelatin or when you boil rice much too long and it goes all sticky and glue like !
doesnt sound all that great to me (as a pudding or otherwise!)

and it doesnt put you off that they use it to make batteries ??????October 3, 2008 at 8:46 pm #83703
Of course not, why would it? Its not as if tapioca is a by product of the batteries?!?! Its a natural starch, also called cassava, which is a staple food in a lot of the worldOctober 4, 2008 at 7:30 am #83704Prem2PramMember
