As the number of people given to flour-restricted diets is on the rise, flour gotten from cassava is fast becoming the preferred alternative. Here are three reasons why cassava flour could make the top list in every home.
Cassava Flour is Gluten, Grain-Free
Similar to yam, plantain and potato, the cassava plant is a tuber, high in starchy carbohydrate. Hence, it is gluten-, grain- and nut-free.
Cassava Flour is not Poisonous
Except eaten raw due to the naturally occurring cyanide compounds, cassava is not poisonous. The soaking, cooking and fermenting of the root dissolve the toxic compounds, making it safe for consumption.
