American Key Food Products has expanded its gluten-free cassava flour line.

Cassava is a root vegetable that is naturally gluten-free and native to tropical climates in South America and Asia. It is milled into bakery-quality flour by AKFP’s partner companies through sophisticated processes, the company said in a press release.

AKFP introduced its proprietary King Lion Premium Cassava Flour over a decade ago. Since its introduction, King Lion Premium Cassava Flour has grown to become a key ingredient in a wide range of gluten-free baked goods because it is an excellent substitute for wheat-based flours that eliminates the need for complex formulations. To respond to the varied needs of bakers across all segments, AKFP is introducing alternative cassava flours with different baking performance and at a range of price points.

“We continuously work with our cassava flour production partners to develop flours that have unique value propositions and different baking properties,” said Edwin Pacia, AKFP COO. “With these new offerings, we can better match a cassava flour to an individual baker’s formulation needs. As our customers continue to innovate and define the future of the gluten-free market, we strive to support them with equally innovative ingredient solutions.”

AKFP has gluten-free flour solutions for tortillas, pizza crusts, crackers, breadsticks, cakes, cookies and brownies. Technical specifications are available. At the 2022 IBIE Expo visitors may explore how great gluten-free can be with AKFP’s cassava flour varieties at Booth No. 7564.
