Cassava flour is an exciting flour alternative for a niche market, specifically for those of us who avoid gluten and grains and look for more nutrient-dense options in our food
Cassava’s grain-free flour twindom is the main reason cassava flour is gaining so much momentum at the moment. It is the most similar to wheat flours when it comes to gluten- and grain-free options. It’s light and fine, not grainy or gritty in texture. Instead, it’s soft and powdery much like regular wheat flour. As mentioned earlier, it is also nut-free. You can usually use cassava flour in a 1:1 ratio when substituting wheat flour or all-purpose flour.
