So, what is cassava starch?

Cassava starch is a fine white powder extracted from the roots of the cassava plant. This versatile ingredient is a popular alternative to wheat and corn starches, as it is gluten-free and has a neutral flavor. Cassava starch is commonly used in baking and cooking to thicken sauces, soups, and desserts. It also provides a crispy texture when used as a coating for fried foods. Cassava starch is a good source of carbohydrates and is rich in fiber, making it a healthy addition to any diet. Its unique properties make it an essential ingredient in many cuisines around the world.
