RESEARCH: CASSAVA AND FERTILITY.

RESEARCH: CASSAVA AND FERTILITY.The Cassava plant contains a chemical that causes hyper-ovulation. Cassava works by the same method as prescription fertility drugs, without the side effects. Natural hormones called GnRH released by Cassava fool the brain into thinking there is insufficient estrogen, causing the brain to naturally release more of a hormone called gonadotropin, and dramatically increases the ovulation rate. Cassava is known world wide for its effects on fertility. It helps with increasing the chance of twins, but also with overall fertility. Many women use this supplement to increase fertility even when they’re not trying for twins.

AGRIBUSINESS: Cassava high in iron and zinc could improve diets and health in west Africa.

AGRIBUSINESS: Cassava high in iron and zinc could improve diets and health in west Africa.A new study shows that field-grown cassava plants overexpressing a combination of plant genes can accumulate significantly higher concentrations of iron and zinc. The "hidden hunger" caused by micronutrient deficiency is a global threat to human health, with particularly severe impacts in Africa. In Nigeria, 75 percent of preschool children and 67 percent of pregnant women are anemic, and 20 percent of children below five years suffer from zinc deficiency. Iron deficiency anemia affects the immune system, stunts growth and impairs cognitive development in children, while deficiency in zinc causes increased risk of death from diarrhea, stunting and reduced cognitive development. Developing new varieties of a staple food crop with elevated levels of these two minerals could significantly improve diets and health. he elevated mineral levels of the 'biofortified' cassava storage roots are retained after processing into common foodstuffs and are nutritionally available at levels that could have a significant impact on the health of cassava-consuming populations in West Africa.

Cassava is the third-largest source of food carbohydrates in the tropics, after rice and maize. Cassava is a major staple food in the developing world, providing a basic diet for over half a billion people. CASSAVA VALUE CHAIN AND FOOD SECURITY. Echbee Food has found a new niche where garri a cassava by-product can be turned into nutritious wholesome foods and snacks.

Cassava is basically carbohydrate,but with combination of some food sources it provides a balanced meal complete with protein and fat/oil.The garri-akara is another exceptional product,instead of bean cake garri is mixed with some food sources to make the garri-akara. AGRIBUSINESS: CASSAVA SUCCESS STORIES. The cassava flakes can be eaten as cereal or snack, other products are the chocoballs ,shawarma,puff-puff,cakes,cookies, pancakes and many more. Echbee foods AGRIBUSINESS: CASSAVA SUCCESS STORIES. A Kenyan youth has also struck gold in the cassava business. Muturi, a 24-year-old cassava farmer and recent graduate of Kenya’s Egerton University, founded Bites Cassava Millers Ltd. in Nyeri, Kenya. In 2013 he began to explore ways to extract extra value from cassava, a staple that many considered “poor man’s food. Nickson Muturi harvests cassava on his farm in Kenya. In the process, he developed ways to turn cassava into flour and inexpensive animal feed. His work earned him a 2014 Agribiz4Africa award.Cassava is a tuberous plant, rich in carbohydrates. Muturi considers the tuber “hidden gold” and wants to tell “as many people as possible, especially those in harsh climatic conditions, how they can use cassava to transform their lives.” AGRIBUSINESS: CASSAVA SUCCESS STORIES. To produce flour from the tuber, Muturi cuts cassava into small pieces and soaks the pieces in water to clean them of any chemicals. He then adds a sodium preservative, puts the pieces into polythene bags and places the bags in the sun so the pieces will dry. The drying method is “environment-friendly and makes the drying process faster,” he says. He then mills the dry pieces into flour and sieves it to remove large particles. Muturi uses the plant’s leaves and stems for animal feed. “I ensure that nothing goes to waste,” he says, adding that his methods can be applied to other foods like rice, yams, maize, millet and sorghum.

Agribusiness: Cassava flakes as nutritious food for Children.

In Nigeria, 37 per cent of children, or 6 million children, are stunted (chronically malnourished or low height for age), more than half of them severely. In addition, 18 percent of children suffer from wasting (acutely malnourished or low weight for height), half of them severely. Twenty-nine per cent of children are underweight (both acutely and chronically malnourished or low weight for age), almost half of them severely. (UNICEF.) Provision of nutritious foods along side food fortification has been advocated to stop malnutrition in children. Vitamin A foods have been used to help the children with various food types such as the orange fleshed sweet potato and yellow garri. The vitamin A supplementation for children under 5 years increased significantly between 2007 and 2011, from 37 per cent to 65 per cent, in 2013, only 41 per cent of children under 5 years had received vitamin A supplementation during the previous six months. The rise in the number of malnourished children in the country prompted ECHBEE FOODS,to formulate nutritious foods and snacks from yellow garri that is affordable and readily accessible. Mothers are enjoined to give nutritious meals to their kids to keep them strong and healthy. Echbee Foods turns ordinary garri into extraordinary products by adding other nutrients to make the garri a balanced meal. width="1200" data-original-height="1600" /> Join the race to stop malnutrition in #Nigeria, #endpoverty and #savechildren. #feedthefuture.

CASSAVA MORE PROFITABLE THAN CORN.

CASSAVA MORE PROFITABLE THAN CORN. Cyril Cattiling, who owns a six-hectare cassava farm, smiles when discussing how he produces cassava. One secret he agreed to share is how he gives his crop TLC (tender loving care). He believes that with TLC, he and his fellow farmers in Alfonso Lista, Ifugao can have a bountiful cassava harvest. A proud father and husband, Cattiling is a hands-on cassava grower. He is also the president of the Ifugao Tapioca Growers Association (ITGA) and farm manager of the Yao Jia Xi Corporation, which supplies cassava granules to the San Miguel Corporation (SMC). The ITGA started in 2015 to organize all cassava growers in the municipality. It is composed of 75 members. Meanwhile Yao Jia Xi, a farming corporation, gives planting materials to and shares technology with farmers who are members of ITGA. The ITGA sells dried and granulated cassava to the Yao Jia Xi Corporation which then sells the same to SMC, a consistent buyer. Using a solar dryer and granulator for their cassava, the ITGA produces 250 to 300 bags of granulated cassava, which SMC buys for ₱9.70 per kilo Farming has always been Cattiling’s main source of income. He started cassava production in 2012, shifting to it from corn farming. Just like him, his fellow Ifugao farmers were once corn growers. But because of the high production cost of corn, some of them diversified to cassava production. Cassava has better economic benefits. “Cassava [production] offers a better income compared to corn,” said Cattiling, noting that this is true even though cassava is harvested just once a year. One hectare of corn earns him ₱25,000 while cassava gives him ₱130,000 per hectare from a capital of ₱30,000. With good land preparation and available markets, cassava can be profitable Related post: opportunities in garri value chain. Cassava value chain.

Cassava Root: Beats cancer instead of Chemo and Radiation! Plus it doesn't kill you!.

#Cassava Root: Beats cancer instead of Chemo and Radiation! Plus it doesn't kill you! #Cassava root has Vitamin B-17 which cures cancer and boosts energy. The method of using the cassava root is as follows; you must remove 3 layers of peeling that is where the dangerous poison is so peel it all the way to the white or you could get cyanide poisoning! The peeled cassava is grated then put in a blender with water and blended until fine. A yellowish fluid is a product of the mix,this is decanted,strained and consumed. If grated peeled cassava is blended or consumed raw and it kills cancer cells then further processing of the grated cassava to produce Garri is equally therapeutic for cancer. The high fiber content of garri promotes bowel emptying thus preventing the risk of colon cancer. This high fiber garri can be processed in several ways to fit different age groups,making it a cheap and better source of wholesome food. Another method is to just grate the cassava that the 3 layer coatings have been removed and just eat. #cassava
