Vegan and gluten-free organic sweet potato flour and cassava flour offer chefs and bakers versatility


Edward & Sons Trading Company has added two flours to its line of grain-free flour products: Organic Sweet Potato Flour and Organic Cassava Flour.

Manufactured under the Let’s Do Organic brand, the new flours are designed for those who follow a restricted diet or are eager to explore healthier but equally flavourful flour options for cooking and baking.

The company also makes organic coconut flour, organic chickpea flour and organic green banana flour.

Providing the dense nutrition profile of sweet potatoes in a single multi-purpose grain-free flour, Let’s Do Organic Sweet Potato Flour holds moisture when replacing or enhancing other flours during the preparation of cookies, muffins, breads and cakes and is an excellent thickener for soups, sauces and gravies, the company said in a press release.

Cassava Flour is a whole food, grain-free flour made from organic cassava roots (also known as manioc or yuca). Native to South America, cassava is a staple of tropical diets throughout the world thanks to the plant’s drought tolerance and carbohydrate content. The manufacturer washes, peels and slices whole cassava roots before drying them slowly and then milling them into a fine, gluten-free flour. The cassava flour performs very much like wheat flour. For example, when a recipe calls for one cup of wheat flour, chefs can simply replace it with one cup of cassava flour, with no extra eggs or liquid ingredients required.

In addition, cassava flour has a smooth texture, is an excellent binder for cakes and cookies and thickener for gravies and sauces.

Both sweet potato and cassava flours are USDA Organic; gluten-free, vegan and Kosher certified, and have no added – just sweet potato and cassava, respectively.

Let’s Do Organic Sweet Potato Flour is offered in 12-ounce packages and Cassava Flour is sold in 14-ounce packages.
