Cassava Pancake Mix – 453.17g (16 oz.)
The root of the sweet cassava also called yucca is the plant used to produce cassava flour. Cassava is somewhat synonymous with tapioca, which is the starch extracted from it. The flavor of cassava is very mild, and it works better for binding than other whole-food-based flours, which means gluten-free bakers can bake goods that hold together with less reliance on gums and other starches.
Cassava comes loaded with carbohydrates, including the especially beneficial carbohydrate dietary fiber. Consuming fiber is linked to a number of health benefits, including lower blood pressure, reduced cholesterol levels, better control over your blood sugar levels and a lower risk of obesity.
Cassava also helps you consume more magnesium and copper. A diet rich in magnesium promotes life-long health, lowering your blood pressure and reducing your risk of osteoporosis, while a diet rich in copper helps support healthy nerve function. A cup of cassava contains 206 micrograms of copper, or 23 percent of the copper you need each day.
