What are the benefits of cassava?

Cassava is a very Brazilian food, made in many ways, including in breads like this, but even when it's not the main point of the recipe it still brings its benefits with it. She is a smaller, different-looking version of her cousin, the regular cassava. Although smaller, manioc is just as healthy, if not more so, than manioc. It is a great source of energy and can bring many benefits to your body. It helps with a better functioning of the heart, it also helps to prevent vision diseases and it strengthens the bones by containing calcium, which makes it a great alternative when you don't have milk in your recipe like ours.
