Cassava is an essential drought-resistant crop used in tropical diets in indigenous Caribbean cuisine. In addition, farmers worldwide consider this tuberous vegetable as a blessing in disguise during food shortages. Cassava’s contribution to food security makes it highly demanded food and suitable for several other uses.

You can do just about anything with cassava. Customarily, cassava is an excellent substitution for potatoes due to its similar taste and texture. However, the results are exceptional when served as a side dish or a snack. Today, technology has introduced fortified cassava to step up its game as a more nutritious choice. With a history of being cultivated hundreds of years before the Christopher Columbus voyage, cassava is now a staple for 500 million people.
