After rice, cassava is the second most important source of energy in Madagascar. The artisanal cassava detoxification method reduces the rate of cyanogenic potential by 3.40 ± 0.00 ppm HCN for the Menarevaka variety; 4.51 ± 0.54 ppm HCN for the Mena variety and 2.44 ± 0.86 ppm HCN for the Fotsy variety. This method produces flours production yields of 32.76 % (Menarevaka), 30.99 % (Mena) and 32.00 % (Fotsy). The flours thus obtained are white and unfermented. They can be used to prepare modern foods.
