Dried Cassava

Paleo • Gluten-Free • Nut-Free • Pet-Friendly

Also known as yuca, cassava is a tuber with dark brown, woody skin and starchy, white flesh. Originally discovered in Brazil, today domestic cassava grows primarily throughout South America, South and Southeast Asia, and West Africa. Its mild, neutral, slightly nutty flavor makes this ingredient a favorite for gluten-free and paleo applications. Cassava pairs well with garlic, lime peel, and cilantro.

Cassava may provide impressive health support due to its very high resistant starch content. Studies show that resistant starch may help support digestive health, blood sugar, and weight management.(1)

BCFoods cassava flakes and powder are ideal ingredients for paleo, gluten-free, and nut-free applications, such as crackers, cookies, and baking mixes. Cassava flour is also an excellent thickener for dairy-free yogurt. Like in human food, cassava is often used in limited ingredient dry dog and cat foods.
