Organic Cassava Flour
Cassava—also known as yuca—is a root vegetable that's starchy like plantains, potatoes, or parsnips. Cassava flour is made from the whole root, peeled, dried, and ground. And now, its grain-free self is sweeping the gluten allergen world for plenty of reasons.
Cassava flour is easier to digest than other flours due to its lighter consistency, as it comes from the root (not a grain), and it has a high fiber content. The fiber helps to improve regularity and ease digestion.
Cassava flour is easy to use in recipes in place of traditional grain-based flours or even gluten-free flour blends. One of the best things about using cassava flour is its neutrality in terms of taste. It doesn’t have a dry, strong or unfamiliar taste or texture that often comes with using some gluten-free flours.
Many people find that cassava can be used in recipes without it even being detected at all and that it’s practically indistinguishable from wheat-based counterparts. Its texture lends well to baking things like brownies, cookies and denser breads, or you can use it in savory dishes to thicken sauces or to form burgers/patties.
