What is the difference between cassava and yuca?
Cassava and yuca are the same but are reffered to differently depending on where it's cultivated. For example, in Mexico cassava is known as yuca whereas in large parts of South America and Africa, it's referred to as cassava.
What is the difference between cassava/ cassava flour and tapioca/ tapioca flour?
Cassava is the root and tapioca is the starch extracted from the root. Although used interchangeably, the main difference lies in creating the flour. Cassava flour is made by peeling, drying and grounding the entire root. Tapioca flour is the starch extracted from the root, processed by washing, pulping and squeezing the liquid until the water has evaporated. Learn more about the differences and health benefits on the tab .
Scientific research shows that the roots (mostly in the peel) and leaves of poorly processed cassava contain compounds capable of releasing toxin hydrogen cyanide when consumed raw.
For this reason, proper processing of cassava is critical in the production. We use a bio-technological process (with low environmental impact) to produce our products derived from cassava and each batch is tested to ensure safe consumption.
Made in a dedicated gluten-free facility our products are certified gluten-free, vegan and top 8 allergen friendly.
Our All Purpose Cassava flour is the perfect wheat flour substitute. It's grain free and paleo friendly. For most baking recipes you'll use 25% less of the recommended amount measured in cups or grams.
First, what is gluten? Gluten is a type of protein that causes chronic disease and health problems and can be found in your typical daily foods such as wheat, rye and barley. Gluten intolerance or sensitivity may lead to a variety of symptoms including but not limited to feeling bloated and suffering from nausea, respiratory problems, congestion (in the nose) and rashes.
Although gluten intolerance can lead to serious health hazards, it is often mistaken with celiac disease. While gluten intolerance is described as an allergic reaction to gluten in the digestive tract, celiac disease is an inherited autoimmune disorder in which gluten leads to intestinal inflammation and long-term damage to the small intestine. Since there is no cure for the disease, those living with it can control it by observing a strict gluten free diet.
For individuals diagnosed with Celiac disease or an allergy to gluten, the market provides a wide array of gluten-free alternatives that are just as tasty, and in some cases, a lot better for your health!
In our humble opinion, it’s the best gluten free option you’ll ever taste! 😊 Our highly nutritious cassava flour combined with other natural, non-gmo ingredients give our pasta a texture and taste similar to regular wheatbased pasta, just a healthier alternative.
Prep Instructions: Bring a pot of water to a boil, add your pasta and it’s ready within 5 minutes. Do a taste test for your desired texture. Like many other (dry) pastas, you can add salt or olive oil to taste. However, this is not necessary.
