What Is An Organic Chebe Product

By Donald Long

Don't be confused by the African Chebe seed that women use for more beautiful hair. The organic Chebe product line offers bread and baking Mixes to make great tasting, healthy food for you and your family. An added bonus to 'organic' and 'really good' is that the mixes are gluten-free. The basic ingredient of the products is manioc root, which is also known as yucca and cassava, and which gives us tapioca.

The people at Chebe want consumers to know that they didn't start out as a gluten-free company. They wanted only to introduce North Americans to the delicious bread they found in Brazil, made from the local manioc root. However, the response from those who were gluten-intolerant let them know that they were filling a need in many people's lives.

The manioc, or yucca, or cassava, or tapioca root was a primary source of food for the indigenous population of Brazil and surrounding regions. The tuber has a thick, rough, brown skin but a snow-white insides which yield a flour or a starch, depending on its processing. The root contains toxins and must be carefully pounded and washed to make it edible. Most consumers will want to buy a ready-to-use mix, although the root can be bought in some exotic-foods groceries.

To find Chebe products, look for the gluten-free section of your local grocery. You can also go online to the Chebe homepage and see all the mixes the company offers. The original bread mix is still popular, giving you a well-rounded loaf with pleasing texture and great taste.

Other mixes contain added ingredients, usually spices. Check the labels or the website to see if there is anything that you shouldn't have because of personal food sensitivities or allergies. Mixes are sold to make pizza crust, focaccia, cinnamon rolls, and breadsticks, to name a few.

For those who suffer from gluten-intolerance and who've given up baked goods and bread, these mixes are a godsend. Being gluten-free, they don't trigger the cramping, bloating, or intestinal discomfort that comes with eating wheat or other grain products. However, they offer a true bread taste that is rare among substitution foods.

Best of all, the mixes are super convenient and very affordable. Consumers know that many wheat alternatives are expensive and hard to work with. These mixes are easy to use, and the basic recipes easy to follow. Consumers have sent in many more, too, so look on the company homepage for new ideas. They are also great when relatives with food sensitivities visit; keep the mixes on hand for those special times over the holidays or for impromptu pizza parties. It's no fun when someone is left out of the great American pastime, eating!

It's wonderful that the mixes are organic, too. This means that they are free of GMO ingredients, pesticide and herbicide residue, and -traces of chemical fertilizer. Your purchase helps support sustainable agriculture and protect farm workers from chemical toxins. Enjoy baked goods again and live green!
