I bought another brand recently and it was awful. Bad smell and it would not cooperate. Never again! Otto's all day everyday!!
I just started using Otto's Cassava flour and am blown away. Thank you for making such a great product. Life can be difficult for those who cannot eat grains. You've made that process much simpler.
My family LOVES your cassava flour! Well wait. Actually, they have no idea they are eating it! Let’s rephrase. They love everything I’ve made with Otto’s...therefore they love it...without knowing whether they are eating cassava flour or wheat flour.
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 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 often works beautifully as a one-to-one sub for All-Purpose flour, especially by weight! Just use 120 grams per cup of regular flour called for in most traditional recipes. If you don't have a digital scale just give Otto's a good stir with a whisk before measuring it out and reduce volume by about 15-20%.

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 satisfied the cravings I had.
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!
