Unit price/ per
*BBD 21.03.24* Gluten free. Polvilho doce or sweet manioc starch is a key ingredient in Brazilian cheese bread. The sweet manioc starch or cassava starch is made from pressing and squeezing fresh cassava roots and dried to form a very fine white flour. The starch is called sweet in contrast to sour manioc starch where the cassava juice is fermented and then dried - which you use is a matter of personal taste. It's certainly worth trying both! The sweet starch is also used to make the popular crunchy polvilho biscuits.
As well as an ingredient in Brazilian cheese rolls - like small cheesy choux buns with an airy soft centre - the manioc starch is used as a thickener in soups and gravies.
Ingredients: cassava starch. Store in a dry and cool place.
