Cassava Flour Offers
Healthy Baking Options
Cassava flour is a grain free and gluten free flour that is perfect for both cooking and baking. This flour is nutritionally dense and made from a root vegetable called cassava. Due to its similarities in appearance, texture, and taste, it has been called the gluten free flour that is most like white wheat flour. It is widely used in Nigeria, Thailand, and Indonesia and can be included in anything that would contain wheat flour, including desserts, breads, and savory dishes.
How does cassava flour compare to tapioca flour
If you are interested in gluten free flours, you have probably heard of tapioca flour, too. Tapioca flour is also made from the cassava plant, but it comes from the starchy part of the plant. On the other hand, cassava flour incorporates the entire root of the plant, which gives it a greater number of nutrients and potential health benefits, when compared to tapioca flour.
Why choose cassava flour
Cassava flour is a great option for people who are sensitive to gluten or who just want to cook and bake with a more nutrient dense alternative to wheat flour. It also contains resistant starches which remain in your colon for a long period of time, ferments, and promotes the growth of healthy bacteria, which can help reduce inflammation and improve digestive health.
In addition, cassava flour is lower in fat content than coconut and almond flour, and it's lower in calories than corn, plantain, or rice flours.
