Product of the week - Minute tapioca

One of my new American recipes called for minute tapioca to act as a thickener. I have used regular tapioca before but not this stuff. Essentially it is just precooked tapioca so it can be used quickly rather than the long and sticky process associated with regular tapioca (and it can also be used in the microwave). The ingredients list also says that it included soy lecithin. Seems like a handy product but not one that would be used too regularly.
