Australians can now enjoy a taste of Brazil with the launch of Taoca, a vegan, gluten-free crepe mix made from tapioca flour.
Co-owners Renata Santoniero and Bruno Homero say they are determined to introduce another side of Brazilian cuisine with their Brazilian-style Tapioca Crepes.
This style of crepes is a popular street food in Brazil that can have a savoury or sweet filling, and is made from cassava starch; Taoca uses tapioca flour, an ingredient with fewer calories and carbohydrates.
The product, said the owners, was initially intended as an alternative to dishes that uses wheat flour or mix that contain gluten. However, it’s so “delicious and light” that the brand is campaigning the product as the go-to ingredient when making crepes.
Taoca is available for purchase online through the brand’s website for RRP $9 per 500g pouch.
