Gluten-free flours are often associated with a dry or distinguishably different taste and texture that can make it a less-than-ideal alternative.
However, Otto’s Cassava Flour can be used to tackle any recipe that calls for a wheat-based counterpart and delivers nearly identical results.
The History of Otto’s Naturals
Founders Sadie and John - with their son as the namesake - started Otto’s Naturals because of their deep love for trying new foods and using unique ingredients. The company is built on a strong desire to find alternatives to traditional foods that can provide delicious results for a gluten-free lifestyle.
Through their search for alternatives, the couple found traditionally milled cassava flour. The taste and texture was lacking, but there was promise. Working with a group in Brazil, they mastered the art of premium cassava flour. By altering the milling process, they eliminated the fermented, musty smell and now continuously strive to provide the highest-quality cassava flour available on the market.
Otto’s Naturals Company Mission
Otto’s Naturals strives to provide an all-natural, grain-free replacement for wheat flour that performs just as well. It wants cakes, cookies, brownies, and pancakes - as well as sauces and gravy - to be just as good as you remember.
The company’s cassava flour can be used as a 1:1 replacement in countless recipes. For those that are a little more complicated, Otto’s Naturals works to provide original recipes and resources to assist with alterations. It insists that you don’t need to sacrifice taste or texture for your health.
Benefits of Otto’s Naturals
Cassava, also known as yuca, is a root vegetable that works as an ideal alternative for wheat when dried and ground properly. While other cassava flours are hand-peeled and sun-dried, leading to its sour and musty taste, Otto’s Cassava Flour is thoroughly peeled and then baked into a clean-smelling flour that guarantees a superior alternative.
Only 100% yuca (cassava) and water is used to make this flour, meaning it is a whole food you can feel good about.
