Cassava Flour is produced from whole cassava tuber that has been dried and ground into a powder. Cassava is a perennial plant that grows best in tropical climates, under moist, fertile, and well-drained soils. First cultivated in South America, the cassava root became a staple food for the natives of that region due to its valuable nutritional benefits.
• Our cassava flour is not hand peeled and neither is it sun-dried, ensuring it is of the highest quality available.
• Due to partial gelatinization, the flour has a high water binding capacity and a high degree of expansion under optimal extrusion condition.
• Perfect for use in gluten free baking as it’s performance closely mimics the structure, texture, and taste of wheat-based products.
• Can be used to give products a light colour, smooth surface and closed structure.
