Vacuum cooked yuca fries. The bag, where the yuca fries are vacuum cooked in, is also the packaging we deliver the yuca fries in. There’s 2,5 kilo of yuca fries in one packaging. To make sure the yuca don’t turn brown too quickly before frying, a small amount of the antioxidant sodium metabisulfite is added. To give you a sample: a handful of nuts or two glasses of red wine contain more of this antioxidant than 10 kilo of yuca.

Yuca fries are also more sustainable than potatoes and sweet potatoes. To produce 1 kilo yuca 82 liters of water is required. Against 383 liters of water and 284 liters with potatoes and sweet potatoes. The plant can handle a lot  and also brings a lot, even on the dry grounds.
