What is Yam Flour
Yam flour is powdered starch widely used in food preparation. Typically white, the flour is commonly used in African dishes, such as Amala. It may be used in many other recipes if desired as well. It is prepared by grinding dried yams until they reach a powdered consistency. Dehydrated flour from yams may also be produced from sun drying.
