Information About Cassava Flour

A natural gluten-free alternative, cassava flour is a valuable ingredient in a variety of products, including snacks, pastas, sauces, and as a thickening agent in soups and gravies.

As more consumers seek gluten free options, cassava flour rises in popularity due to its versatile properties as a substitute. It does not compromise taste or texture, and holds excellent binding capabilities, aiding in texture and the structure of baked goods and other formulations. Furthermore, cassava flour has good moisture retention properties, contributing to the freshness and shelf life of products.
