Product Description

Natures Flavours' Organic Tapioca Maltodextrin is a food-grade dextrose made from tapioca, which comes from Cassava Root.

It can be used as the carbohydrate component of an elemental diet shake.

Ingredients: Organic tapioca maltodextrin

Nutrition Facts: Please see the secondary product image above.

Vegan, Kosher, certified organic, and 100% Gluten Free!

This product can be used as a filler in sauces, gravies and pie fillings.

It can also be used in dry powder formulations such as cocoa mix, instant coffee mix, puddings, or any formula that you need to fill in with bulk or space.

It is excellent in baking and cooking.

This product does not have an immediate effect on the taste buds because you can't taste the sweetness right away. It takes about 2 to 3 seconds for your taste buds to begin perceiving the sweetness.

Here's What Jini Says

If you are making up your own Elemental Diet shakes, then this is the product you can use for the carbohydrate component of the shakes.

We specifically sourced organic tapioca for you, rather than corn maltodextrin, since it is extremely difficult to find certified non-GMO corn in North America anymore. Tapioca comes from Cassava root, so it is highly tolerated and gluten-free.

If you do not have the instructions for how to mix up your own elemental shakes, you can download the Elemental Shake Instructions here.

You can also buy one of our Vegan Elemental Shake Kits with all the ingredients you need and instructions, plus The IBD Remission Diet book and a FREE BlenderBottle to mix the shakes in.

Product Reviews

  1. Good and necessary product, but over-priced 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2014

    There's not much point in reviewing the product itself. If you're going to do Jini's elemental diet, and make the shakes yourself, it's what you need. It seems to be the only non-GMO maltodextrin available, so on that basis it deserves 5 stars.

    However, the product is available direct from Nature's Flavors at half the price LTYG charges. I don't understand the reason for this kind of mark-up. There is one advantage to getting it here, and that is that if you order from NF, it can take as much as 10-14 days for them to process the order. Though I just ordered some from them and they shipped in just a few days. (Incidentally, you can also get larger or smaller sizes from them.)

    I emailed LTYG and asked why they charged double the NF price for this product but didn't get an answer.


    Hi Rick,

    Thanks for your feedback. And we agree with you! If NF would give us wholesale pricing, then we could pass that discount on. Unfortunately, they sell to us at only a few dollars cheaper than they sell to you. Then we have to pay to ship it our warehouse, pay a receiving and storage fee. Then when a customer orders from us, we have to pay a pick and pack fee, then usually we have to pay for shipping to the customer (since they qualify for free shipping). Add to that, the fact that this is a HEAVY product, so the shipping charges at both points are not cheap.

    So why do we even bother to stock this product? For the EASE factor. Most of the people who use LTYG Shoppe know that they can get many of these products cheaper elsewhere. We are not a volume seller and we cannot compete with the big sellers - or we would be out of business. BUT we are a place where you can get everything you need in one place, in one order, and with free shipping that arrives in a few days.

    Keep in mind I have always encouraged my readers to use the LTYG Shoppe as a resource - write down the specific brands I recommend and then purchase them wherever you prefer.
