The Ingredient: Tapioca Maltodextrin


Will Goldfarb introduces tapioca maltodextrin, an ingredient commonly used in restaurant kitchens to turn fats into powders. Goldfarb demonstrates how tapioca maltodextrin can turn a homemade chocolate-hazelnut-praline spread into “nutella soil”, which can be sprinkled on toast, cereal, ice cream, and many other desserts. Tapioca maltodextrin isn’t usually found in stores but can be ordered online.
