Garri (Cassava flakes) is perhaps the most popular Nigerian staple, with different versions of taste, grain size, and color. Ijebu Garri is produced in the western part of Nigeria and owes its name to the Ijebu township in Ogun state. It is a special type of Garri that has the smoothest whole grain with a unique sour taste that is great eaten as cereal. This is also great as ‘fufu’ (Eba) eaten with egunsi soup. Garri is high in fiber, aids digestion, helps to burn off fat and boosts your energy. When eaten in moderation, it can help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
