Organic and gluten-free cassava flour
The organic and gluten-free flours are made by Carlos Zumbado, a farmer from Upala, in Costa Rica that I particularly like and who calls me Muchacha. Its flours are pure and produced with rigorous care. You will enjoy cooking such fresh and tasty flours to diversify your gluten-free nutritional intake.
Cassava is a starchy root or tuber from South America. It is also known as yucca.
Unlike tapioca flour, which consists of a starchy liquid extracted from the cassava root, cassava flour is obtained by grating and drying the whole root. This flour is gluten-free, cereal-free and nut-free.
It is very similar to white flour and can easily be used in recipes that require all-purpose flour. It has a neutral flavor and is easy to digest. It also contains fewer calories than coconut or almond flour.
Cassava flour consists mainly of carbohydrates. Similar to tapioca flour, it also provides resistant starch, which has various benefits for the digestive system.
Some research suggests that the resistant starch content in this type of flour may help lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity. Note that processing cassava root can lower the levels of resistant starch present in flour.
