Cassava, also known as yuca or manioc, refers to a starchy-tuber of the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae) of plants. Its origin lies in the tropical areas of the American continents, particularly in South America. It is a perennial plant which grows best under tropical, moist, fertile, and well-drained soils.
Cassava is currently grown in over 90 countries as it yields a better produce in adverse conditions than most other crops. A majority of cassava is consumed directly while the rest is processed into stable product forms such as starch, pellets, flour, chips, soups, dips, etc.
Processing of cassava is associated with a number of advantages. It improves the overall value of the product as naturally-occurring toxins found in the root are removed. The weight of the product is also reduced, thereby, facilitating easy transportation to markets. Moreover, along with the extended product shelf-life, post-harvest losses arising from breakage of the roots are also minimised. Another major driver for high demand of processed cassava is its reliability in harsh environments. Owing to the aforementioned benefits of processed cassava, it is widely used in different forms in various industries. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global cassava processing market reached a volume of around 288 Million Tons in 2016 and is further expected to reach 318 Million Tons by 2022.
