TAPIOCA or cassava plant (Manihot utilissima, Pohl.) occupies a place of considerable importance among the food crops of South India. The various varieties of tapioca are generally distinguished as 'bitter' and `sweet' depending on the presence or absence of a cyanogenetic glucoside in the tubers. Together with the glucoside, an enzyme is also present which can decompose it and liberate hydrocyanic acid. The enzyme is destroyed on boiling the tubers and the HCN is dissolved in water.
