Pão de Queijo, also called Brazilian Cheese Bread, is a savory snack that’s lightly crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside! Popular throughout Brazil, parts of South America and now gaining interest in North America, this tasty cheese bread has been baked in home kitchens and local bakeries for generations. Now American bakers can add Pao de Queijo to their snack offerings using our convenient, new ready-mix . Simply add ingredients such as milk and eggs, plus any choice of cheese blends such as cheddar or Parmesan.
Vegetable, bacon, or ham bits can be included for a variety of taste and texture experiences. Then form the dough into walnut-sized balls and bake. It’s that easy. No special technique or equipment is needed. The secret is a blend of native tapioca or cassava starches which are naturally gluten-free, non-GMO, allergen-free, and clean label.
This unique mix was specially developed by Cassava S/A, a noted leader in cassava/tapioca production technology in Brazil and the exclusive supply partner of American Key Food Products (AKFP). This Brazilian Cheese Bread mix is distributed in North America solely by AKFP and is made and handled to the highest standards of quality, consistency and food safety.
