Halacha - Pesach Tapioca
Submitted by meir  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

According to the dictionary Tapioca is a starch extracted from the root of the cassava plant. Therefore it should be permitted even for Ashkenazim and not be considered kitniyos. However it would certainly require a reliable Pesach hashgacha.
