So, what is cassave?

Cassava, also known as yuca or manioc, is a starchy root vegetable that is a dietary staple in many parts of the world. It is native to South America and has been cultivated for thousands of years. Cassava is high in carbohydrates, low in fat and protein, and a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and minerals. It is commonly used in dishes like cassava fries, stews, and baked goods. Cassava can also be processed into flour, starch, and tapioca, which are widely used in the food industry as thickeners, binders, and stabilizers. However, it is important to note that cassava must be cooked properly to remove toxins before consumption.
