INTRODUCTION OF CASSAVA APPLICATIONS

Cassava is used in many kinds of products such as food, sweets, sweeteners, glues, plywood, textiles, paper, biodegradable products, monosodium glutamate, and drugs. Cassava chips and pellets are used in livestock feed and alcohol production.

Ethanol 

Sliced cassava is an alternative source of raw materials for the production of wine as well as the health and wine industry.

Animal feed

Cassava roots can be processed into chips and pellets that can be used in animal feeds for cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, poultry, and farmed fish. Cassava leaves are a food source for livestock.

Food

Cassava is widely used in Vietnam, Thailand for food. It is mainly consumed in the form of Gari, Fufu, Tapioca, Starch, kpokpogari, and lafun. In the northern part of the country, it is eaten raw as a dish.

Modification of starch derivatives or cassava starch has been applied for thickening, binding, texturing and stabilizing a wide range of food products such as canned food, frozen food, salad dressings, sauces, and infant foods.

Sweetener

Glucose and fructose from cassava starch are used instead of sucrose in jam and canned fruit. Cassava-based sweeteners are preferred in beverage formulations for improved handling characteristics and enhanced product characteristics.

MSG

Cassava starch is a popular source for making MSG in Asia. It is used to enhance the taste in food, for example, Ajinomoto.

Paper

Cassava starch replacement is used in damp wet paper, which improves the speed of the pulp and reduces the loss of pulp. Native and modified tapioca starch is also used in the encoding and size of paper, improving strength, binding to paper sheets, and controlling ink consumption to improve print quality.

Glue

Cassava starch is a very important ingredient in making glue. Cassava-based dextrates are excellent adhesives and are used in a variety of applications including pre-adhesive papers, tapes, labels, stamps and envelopes.

Pharmaceutical industry

Cassava starch forms are used as adhesives, fillers, and decomposers.

Biodegradable products

Cassava starch can be used as a biodegradable polymer to replace plastics in packaging materials.

Plywood

Glue made from cassava starch is an important material in the production of plywood. The quality of the plywood depends very much on the glue used. 

Textile

Tapioca starch is used in three stages of processing textiles: the size of the fiber and its protection during weaving, to enhance color uniformity during printing, and to make the fabric durable and shine .
