Cassava flour is made from the cassava root. In texture, cassava flour reassembles wheat flour and is very finely ground. Cassava flour can easily be used by people who are allergic to nuts, as it is both nut and grain free. If you are unable to use coconut or nut-based flours in recipes, cassava is a great alternative for gluten-free baking.
Cassava flour is taste neutral when used with other ingredients, and it helps digestion so it is especially useful if you suffer from a delicate gastrointestinal tract. The flour has a low-calorie content, not containing much fat or sugar.
