Production & Sourcing
The cassava roots are first washed and peeled to remove impurities. They are then grated or finely chopped. The resulting pulp is then pressed to extract a starchy liquid.
This liquid undergoes a process of sedimentation and drying, during which the water content decreases, leaving behind the pure starch.
The starch is then further dried and milled to achieve the desired texture, resulting in the fine, white powder known as Cassava Starch
