SOME INFORMATION ON CASSAVA
The manioc or yuca is a species of native plants of Central America and South America, especially the southwestern Amazon Basin.
Its name comes from a Tupi myth which tells how the goddess Mani, white skin, established his home (father) in the root of the plant – hence the words : Hands-goose and Tapioca – tapioca being a manioc derivative.
It was widely used by the settlers because of its high resistance to drought, its high profitability, but it was also to feed the slaves cheaply.
cassava, imported from Brazil in the sixteenth century, became in the & rsquo; a few decades the staple food of many African populations
Cassava is particularly well suited to the soil and climate of Africa, and it is consumed today in sub-Saharan Africa.
Indeed, Cassava can simply poor soils and very low rainfall. In addition, it can be harvested all year. Cassava also holds the record for highest efficiency in calories harvested per hectare, among all food crops except sugar cane.
There are two varieties of cassava, one of which can be fatal, because of the presence of cyanide in the roots : that is why it should be washed well with water the tubers before preparing.
- Sweet Cassava: grown for local consumption in its tubers;
