What is cassava flour?
Cassava flour is a great gluten-free alternative to wheat flour – lactose-free, vegan, non-GMO, sugar-free, and salt-free – and is classified as a low glycemic index food, so it is suitable for people with low glycemic index diets. Its mild flavor, light color and powdery texture make it a close substitute for wheat flour. It does not alter the taste of recipes, and some people say it is difficult to differentiate from recipes that use regular flour.
What are the health benefits of cassava?
- Rich in minerals
Cassava is an excellent source of essential minerals including calcium, manganese, iron, phosphorous and potassium.
- Rich in fibre
Fibre is good for the human body. Cassava is an excellent source of dietary fibre that helps improve digestive functions, promote heart health, and can play an important role in weight loss. It can also slow the rate at which sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, making cassava a suitable option for diabetics.
- Rich in carbohydrates
While not everyone wants to increase their carbohydrate intake, a high carbohydrate diet is beneficial for some people, especially athletes or people who engage in very high-energy activities. Carbohydrates from cassava are converted into glucose in the body before being converted into glycogen and stored in the muscles.
- Beneficial for the skin
Cassava peels can be used as a skin scrub by grinding them to get a sticky paste that you rub the skin with for a few minutes before washing the face or body with cold water. You can also use the same plant as a face mask to open pores, improve skin texture, moisturize and remove scars and spots.
