Is cassava starch and cassava flour the same?
Cassava starch is different from cassava flour and belongs to two substances. Cassava starch and cassava flour are very different in use and extraction method.
1.Different in use
Cassava flour: Cassava flour is generally a powdery granule. After being cooked with water and heated, it will appear transparent, with a chewy texture. Tapioca flour is mostly used in food processing, such as dessert dumplings, pudding or crystal dumplings.
Cassava starch: Cassava starch is a fine powder, and will not form agglomerates when heated with water. Cassava starch is generally used as a condiment in daily life. When cooking or making soup, cassava starch can thicken the soup. When frying some food, cassava starch can also be wrapped on the outer layer of the food to make the fried food more crispy.

2.Different in extraction method
Cassava flour: After washing and peeling the cassava with dry sieve and paddle washing machine, use cutting machine and rasper to crush the clean cassava, and then use plate-frame filter press to dehydrate the cassava pulp(for small-scale production, you can choose hydraulic press to dehydrate). After dehydration, the powdery particles obtained by drying with flash dryer are cassava flour. Because the cassava flour processing method is relatively simple, cassava flour is generally produced by family workshops.
Cassava flour production line
Cassava starch: Cassava starch is the starch obtained through the entire cassava processing line, and the processing technology is more complicated. The cassava is cleaned by dry sieve and paddle washing machine, crushed by cutting machine and rasper, sieved by centrifugal sieve and fine fiber sieve, deep filtration by desander and disc separator, concentrated extraction by hydrocyclone, dehydrated by peeler centrifuge, dried in flash dryer, and sieved with vibration sieve, finally the fine and high-quality powdered particles obtained are starch. Casssava starch generally produced by industrial assembly lines.
