Premium Cassava Flour is a gluten-free flour made from cassava roots that can approximate the physical characteristics of wheat flour. This flour can serve as an ideal extrusion ingredient on its own, or combined with protein-rich flours that are difficult to extrude. Extruded applications can achieve great crispiness and mouthfeel that is expected in products such as tortilla chips.
After investing more than a year into developing and perfecting a specialized manufacturing process to produce this unique ingredient from cassava root, we have developed King Lion Premium Cassava Flour, a gluten-free flour that delivers good extrusion characteristics for snack food, cereal, and pasta as well as pet food applications.
Premium Cassava Flour is an AKFP exclusive. Originally developed for the gluten free and grain free markets, Premium Cassava Flour can also serve as an ideal extrusion ingredient due to its inherent low gelatinization temperature, bland taste, high water-binding capacity, and excellent expansion under optimum extrusion conditions. Products extruded with Premium Cassava Flour can achieve good crispiness and mouthfeel. Premium Cassava Flour can also act as an extrusion aid as it can be combined with protein-rich flours that are difficult to extrude.
