Health benefits of Cassava

  • Cassava has nearly twice the calories than potatoes, perhaps highest for any tropical starch rich tubers and roots. 100 g root provides 160 calories. Their calorie mainly comes from sucrose forming the bulk of the sugars in tubers, accounting for more than 69% of the total sugars. Complex sugar amylose is another major carbohydrate source (16-17%).
  • Cassava is very low in fats and protein than in cereals and pulses. Nonetheless, it has more protein than that of other tropical food sources like yampotatoplantains, etc.
  • As in other roots and tubers, cassava too is free from gluten. Gluten-free starch is used in special food preparations for celiac disease patients.
  • Young tender cassava (yuca) leaves are a good source of dietary proteins and vitamin K. Vitamin-K has a potential role in bone mass building by promoting osteotrophic activity in the bones. It also has established role in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease patients by limiting neuronal damage in the brain.
  • Cassava is a moderate source of some of the valuable B-complex group of vitamins such as folates, thiamin, pyridoxine
  • The root is the chief source of some important minerals like zinc, magnesium,
