About the Nutrition of Cassava Flour

The flour is high in calories. 100 grams of cassava flour provide about 340 calories and is slightly higher than the amount that wheat flour provides (333 calories). The flour is quite low in fat, with about 1.6 gram per 100 grams. It is rich in carbohydrates (80g/100g) and in fiber (12g/100g). Dietary fiber promotes digestion and can balance cholesterol levels. Cassava flour provides less protein than wheat flour, 1.6g/100 g compared to 13 g/100 g, but is an excellent gluten-free alternative for people suffering from celiac disease.

How to Make Cassava Flour?

After harvesting mature cassava roots, the roots are peeled and washed. They are then grated and dehydrated with a screw or hydraulic press. They are then often dried before being finely milled and packaged.  For this process, the most common equipment is a grater, press, dryer, miller and packaging machine. Drying is one of the major factors during the making of cassava flour. There are several ways to dry cassava roots or grated cassava. Natural drying is done by exposing cassava roots or chips to sunlight which is cheap, but also risky as it exposes the cassava to pests and diseases. It is also a long process. Artificial drying is done by de-hydrating cassava with a controllable energy source. An example of artificial drying is the rotary dryer which consist of a drum-like chamber, similar to a tumble dry, which is fueled by energy and rotates the product to extract moisture.
