Most of the bread we consume today can be classified as ultra-processed. The main reason is due to the refined flours that are usually used in its preparation added to the high amount of salt they add.
In addition, these white breads are full of additives and make the consumer gain weight. This is indicated by some studies by the University of Las Palmas and the University of Navarra published in the British Journal of Nutrition and BioMed Public Health. The studies conclude that “consumption of white bread (from two or more servings a day) showed a significant direct relationship with the risk of obesity and/or overweight.”
We have all tried to get a healthy alternative to bread, and for that the famous cassava tostadas, also known as CASABE, arrive in Spain. This ancestral product has arrived in Spain to compete with bread worldwide.
Toast, made only with organic cassava, has proven to be a healthy option for bread lovers, standing out for its nutritional benefits and its satiating effect. Undoubtedly, they should not be missing in the kitchen of people who have an active life due to their high level of fiber and low level of fat.
Additionally, they are one of the few naturally gluten-free products (meaning they do not go through any chemical gluten extraction process) so they are also usually present in the recipes of celiac or gluten-sensitive people.
Cassava, with more than 8,000 years of history as a food, is recognized worldwide as a SUPER FOOD. Cassava toast is a healthy alternative to bread and has returned to our diets to help us with a healthy, nutritious and delicious diet. We must not forget the good customs of our ancestors especially if it is REAL FOOD.
