Boba（tapioca pearls）, chewy balls made from tapioca starch, are the essential essence of boba tea. Tapioca starch is an essential raw material for making boba pearls. Recently, with the vigorous development of the boba tea industry, the potential business opportunities in its upstream industry chain have also attracted many investors to invest in tapioca starch processing business. This article aims to introduce the making process of tapioca starch used for boba to friends intending to invest in tapioca starch business.
How to make tapioca starch used for boba?
To make tapioca starch used for boba, there are mainly 5 sections: the cleaning, grating, separating, dewatering, and drying sections.
The cleaning section is the preliminary process to make tapioca starch used for boba. Specialized dry sieves and paddle washing machines effectively remove soil, weeds, and other impurities from the cassava tubers. This ensures that the extracted tapioca starch is free from contaminants, meeting the stringent quality requirements of starch producers. These machines streamline the cleaning process, saving time and effort while improving the overall cleanliness of the raw materials.
The grating section is a key process to make tapioca starch used for boba, which influences the quality of tapioca starch and the chewy texture of boba. The cleaned cassava tubers once entering a cassava grating machine will be grated into starch slurry by the blades rotating at a high speed. The performance of the machine is vital in achieving optimal yield. The grating rate directly affects the starch extraction rate. Our rasper, with 96% grating rate, greatly ensures the starch extraction rate can up to 90%.
To make tapioca starch used for boba, the separating section is crucial. Centrifugal sieves helps remove the coarse fibers from the starch milk, and hydrocyclone station is employed to separate the protein and cell sap out of the starch. These machines utilize centrifugal force to separate the starch from impurities, resulting in a high-quality starch concentrate. The number of centrifugal sieves and cyclone stages can be adjusted according to the desired starch quality and output, providing flexibility to meet different production requirements. The efficiency of these starch extraction machines ensures maximum starch recovery while minimizing water and energy consumption.

Peeler centrifuges play a critical role in the dewatering stage of the tapioca starch processing process. These machines remove excess water from the starch slurry, significantly reducing its moisture content. By efficiently separating water from starch, scraper centrifuges contribute to the production of high-quality and shelf-stable starch. Their robust design, along with precise control over dewatering parameters, ensures consistent and reliable performance.
To make tapioca starch used for boba, the last important section is to dry the wet tapioca starch. A flash dryer drys the qualified starch powder by adopting the negative pressure drying principle, which increase the contact surface between the powder and hot airflow. Finally, it ensures the drying efficiency and lows the starch loss.
