The flour made of the roots is called tapioca. This statement is adapted from Success Digest Extra newspaper.

Two Varieties Of The Cassava: Bitter Or Sweet

Cassava planting is the third largest source of carbohydrates for human food in the world. It is classified as “Sweet” or “Bitter”, depending on the level of toxic cyanogenic gluccoides; improper preparation of bitter cassava causes a disease called Konzo.
