It is made of Cassava (or more often known in Manaus as “Mandioca”), which is a typical Amazonian tuberous root used in many many regional recipes.
Mandiokejo® is sold inside a neat looking box in powdered form but it’s easy to prepare at home, 100% gluten and lactose free and very popular among veggie (and non-veggie) people in Brazil duo to its delicious flavor.
Unfortunately, their original manufacturer (Manioc) had to close their doors, but luckily it was recently announced that another company (Deliveg) is going to continue their production with the same original recipe.
So if you live in or is coming to Brazil, whether you’re a vegetarian or not, that’s another really delicious (and healthy) option you’ll have.
Have you tried Mandiokejo® already? How did you like it? 🙂
