More About Yucca Powder
• Used to make tapioca flour, yucca has a texture a little chewier than the potato and a milder taste. Rich in a range of nutrients, yucca can be used as a substitute in almost all of your favorite potato dishes.
• A 1-cup serving of raw yucca has a little over 42 milligrams of vitamin C per serving. This provides 56.5 percent of the daily intake for women, almost 50 percent of the DI for pregnant women, 35 percent of the DI for breast-feeding women and 47 percent of the DI for adult men.
• A natural antioxidant, vitamin C protects your body from free radicals, which are made by your body when it digests food.
