So, what is cassava root?

Cassava root, also known as yuca or manioc, is a starchy, tuberous root vegetable widely cultivated in tropical regions of the world. With its rough brown exterior and white, fibrous interior, cassava root is a versatile ingredient that can be boiled, mashed, fried, or roasted. It is a staple food in many cultures, prized for its high carbohydrate content and ability to grow in poor soils. Cassava root is also a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making it a healthy addition to any diet. However, cassava root must be properly processed to remove naturally occurring toxins before consumption.
