Coco Malanga root Powder – 453.17g (16 oz.)
Coco (Malanga) is a root vegetable popular in the tropics and South America. In Florida, Malanga is the most popular form of cocoyam, which is a general name applied to several species of Xanthosoma. It is also called yautia, cocoyam, eddo, coco, tannia, sato-imo, and Japanese potatoes.
Coco is often milled into flour, since Malanga is probably the most hypoallergenic food in the world. Even persons with extensive allergies should do very well with this flour. The starch grains are the smallest and most easily digested of all complex carbohydrates. In South America and other tropical regions, Malanga tubers are commonly cultivated for use in the cuisines of those regions. The flavor is like a starchy nut. The tuber is high in calories and fiber along with riboflavin and folate. It also contains a modicum of iron and vitamin C.
Malanga flour is used as a substitute for wheat flour to make cookies, quick breads, loaf breads, pancakes, bagels, muffins, doughnuts, dumplings, and similar items
