GRAIN-FREE JUST GOT EASY
It all started with our game-changing, single-ingredient, Top 8 Allergen Free cassava flour. Now we have a line of baking mixes that are completely grain-free and allergy friendly, yet so good the whole family can enjoy - without worry. We want to make things easy for moms in the modern family, where multiple allergies are the norm. With Otto's there's no need to sacrifice traditions and no need to make separate meals for different family members. Our goal is to bring comfort food back to the table for all, proving allergy friendly foods can taste just as good as their traditional counterparts!
WHAT IS CASSAVA FLOUR?
Cassava - pronounced [kuh-sah-vuh], also known as Yuca Root - has been a staple food for millions around the world for centuries. We dry and grind this delicious and sustainable root vegetable into a clean tasting flour you can count on again and again.
You may have heard of Cassava Flour's commonly known cousin, Tapioca. While they both come from the same root, they function quite differently both in baking and in your digestive system. It may help to think of Tapioca like cornstarch, and Cassava Flour like corn flour. Though from the same source, they are not usually interchangeable.
Otto's Naturals - Cassava Flour is also really easy to use! In most recipes either sub it in 1:1 by weight or, if your recipe calls for cups, just reduce flour volume by 25%. For example, if your recipe calls for 1 cup of All-purpose flour just use 3/4 cup of Otto's!
Please check our recipe section out to see the possibilities for yourself! It's a whole food you can feel good about and we can't wait for you to try it!
WHO WE ARE / WHY WE STARTED
Hi there! We're Sadie, John, and Otto (our little CEO in the middle).
Otto's Naturals all started when I was pregnant with Otto. I began to take my health practitioners' advice to stay off grains much more seriously but couldn't find an easy-to-use flour replacement that didn't TASTE grain-free.
Two years later Otto's Naturals - Cassava Flour was born!
We are proud to bring you this revolutionary, single-ingredient, whole-food, flour made entirely from Non-GMO Yuca root. Hope you love it as much as our family does!
