The bio-fortified cassava which is rich in vitamin A is becoming widespread in Africa, driven by increasing awareness of its health and nutrition benefits. Garri is not just a staple food in Nigeria but also a daily meal. Garri constitutes a daily meal to over 150 million people worldwide. It is a popular West African food. It could be compared to what potato flour is to the Westerners. It is even more versatile than that. It can be eaten as a snack (cassava flakes) in cold water on a very hot day, or cooked in hot water (cassava flour) to make a dough-like meal called “Eba.” You cannot claim to have eaten any West African food without having eaten Garri!
