Before enjoying this menu, We know this “plant” What is cassava …
Cassava (Manihot esculenta) is a perennial shrub of the Euphorbiaceae family, native to Central America and South America, especially in southwestern Amazon basin. He is now widely cultivated and harvested as annual plant in tropical and subtropical regions.
Usually eaten very rich in carbohydrates and gluten-free roots, but also its leaves in Africa, in Asia and in the Brazil North (for the manufacture of the maniçoba). To the North and northeast of the Brazil, the word flour (in Portuguese farinha) means above all cassava flour, and non-wheat. This flour is not the appearance of wheat flour : It looks rather like a dry semolina more or less coarse in colour from bright yellow to grey passing by the White. It is in fact a starch, Word more appropriate to speak of the “flour” outcome of a root.
A great step forward in the deciphering of the cassava genome
New work, which was attended by researchers from the french centre in agricultural research for development, Cirad, greatly improve the deciphering of the cassava genome, a culture that nurtures today 800 millions of people on the planet. Published in the journal Nature Biotechnology, they pave the way for the development of varieties resistant to diseases and the improvement of yields, highlights release.
These results are important because the clonal propagation of cassava makes it particularly vulnerable to diseases, including viral. Most importantly, global demand is up sharply since the beginning of the 2000, taken by the Asian and African markets.
