Indonesia proudly holds the title of the world’s fourth-largest cassava producer. This versatile crop finds its way into baking bread and cakes, while its leaves offer protein, calcium, and essential vitamins. The roots can be transformed through fermentation or processed for industrial applications, such as starch, alcohol, and biofuel production. Our esteemed panel uncovers the enchanting qualities of this cherished ingredient and its resilience in the face of climate change.

Indonesia bangga akan gelarnya sebagai penghasil singkong keempat terbesar di dunia. Tanaman serbaguna ini telah dimanfaatkan untuk memanggang roti dan cake, sementara dedaunannya kaya akan protein, kalsium dan vitamin esensial.
