More about Cassava:
Cassava, also known as manioc, is a plant that grows in tropical climates close to the equator. It is a woody shrub that is widely cultivated in countries close to the equator. The top three countries in the cultivation of cassava are Nigeria, Brazil and Thailand.
Apart for being a major staple food in many parts of Africa, it is also a popular food ingredient in Brazilian cuisine. Typically, cassava roots are processed and milled into locally‑customized versions of flour or meal. As such, they are used in popular traditional dishes or baked and dessert products in this tropical countries where they are grown in abundance.
Did you know the difference between Tapioca starch and Cassava flour?
Tapioca starch is produced by the extraction of only the starch component of the root.
Cassava flour on the other hand, requires the processing of the whole peeled root. Our premium Cassava flour is a special flour that is different from the various flours indigenous to cassava-growing countries.
It was designed to work well in gluten‑free baking.
