In Africa, more and more people decide to substitute the wheat flour with cassava flour to make bread. For one thing, the wheat flour is mainly depended on the importation, while the import price is higher than cassava flour, for another, cassava is a main crop in Africa and the cost for processing cassava flour is relatively lower than wheat flour. Then how to make high quality cassava flour for bread?
In the market, there are two methods making cassava flour for bread. One is the dry method, milling cassava tubers to powder, the other is the wet method, processing fresh cassava tubers to flour. In order to get high quality cassava flour, most people prefer to choose the latter to produce standard cassava flour with high capacity to make bread.
the steps to make cassava flour
The steps to make cassava flour for bread by the wet method are as follows:
Step 1: Selecting and cleaning the Cassava Roots
To make high quality cassava flour for bread, you firstly should select cassava roots which are fresh, firm, free from blemishes, and have a creamy-white flesh inside. Then use cassava cleaning machines to rinse the roots to eliminate any dirt or sand and cassava peeling machines to remove the poisonous layers.
Step 2: Grating the Cassava Roots
After the cleaning process, you shall adopt a cassava grating machine to grate and grind the roots into cassava mash. This machine with a high crushing rate up to 95% can greatly improve the flour productivity as well as ensuring the taste of final cassava flour.
Step 3: Dewatering the Cassava mash
The aim of installing a dewatering machine in the cassava flour making line for bread is to remove the excess water in the cassava mash. The moisture of cassava flour after this machine can be reduced to 40%.
