Does tapioca make you fat and how it affect your weight?

Tapioca have one of the hight number of calories within grain products. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific grain products, tapioca seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other grain products.

Really hard to find higher calories count in grain products. Similar energy amount have only such products as fluor, arrowroot flour or carob flour.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If tapioca contains nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
