The bitter cassava; a species cultivated in the West Indies, Brazil, and other parts of tropical America. From its roots various food stuffs are prepared. The cassava meal, used for cassava cakes, etc., is obtained by rasping; the contained starch is separated and used as food under the name of Brazilian arrow-root, and, made into pellets by heat, forms commercial tapioca.
