Pão de queijo or Brazilian cheese bread is a small, baked cheese roll or cheese bun, a popular snack and breakfast food in Brazil. It is a traditional Brazilian recipe, originating in the state of Minas Gerais.
The peoples from Minas Gerais,serve the daily coffee always accompanied by a good cheese bread. All this because it was in the state that the ingredients for the current recipe were evolving. First, the gum comes from cassava, which turns into sour or sweet sprinkles.
It is possible to affirm that cheese bread is a balanced food in relation to nutrients and, consequently, healthy, as it contains water, carbohydrate, protein, lipids, minerals and vitamins.
Thus, the cheese bread does not have gluten, as it is made with starch, a flour that comes from tapioca gum (made with manioc/cassava). Thus, celiacs – that is: gluten intolerants – can enjoy this delicacy from Minas Gerais, Brazil at will.
