Foods for longevity

Foods for longevity

Research studies indicate that the eating of traditional cuisines, cooked with fresh ingredients harvested from farm that were cultivated with traditional farming methods offers the surest route to health and longevity. Access to these fresh farm produce is only possible in rural areas, and virtually impossible in urban centers where persons with the greatest need for the fresh produce reside. The current practice of buying the food ingredients from the open market is potentially dangerous to health. This has been attributed to lack of the knowledge of food safety practices by farmers and food marketers, and poor enforcement by health officials that allow the sale of the unhealthy produce. The best option is to buy the staple foods that have been packaged by persons and companies known to regulatory agencies such as NAFDAC, who can vouche for their products, and can easily be traced in case of food poisoning and other deleterious health effects. The food companies are also more likely to adopt practices that ensure the wholesomeness of their products, thus ensuring that their food products are better than those sold in the open market.  

Packaged garri

Relevant Information

When garri is exposed, it absorbs water which encourages the growth of mold. Mold changes the colour of garri and appears to be harmless, because it doesn’t seem to change the taste or moulding ability of garri. But, studies have shown that this is far from the truth. Some of the molds produce cancer-causing chemicals, and other chemicals that cause many other ill health. Exposed garri have also been linked to Lassa fever, and other rat-borne infections. But who has ever gotten sick from eating garri? In truth, many have become sick, but it is hard to tell, because the chemicals produced by the molds in garri, take a long time to cause their illness. If you desire to live a long and healthy life, you should take the simple step of buying and eating the garri that have been processed, stored and bagged, to prevent the growth of the mold.

Instant Cassava foofoo

Relevant Information

Cassava foofoo is the preferred swallow meal for many persons, because of its texture and calories content. Many persons are however put off by the offensive smell of cassava foofoo, and persons in urban centers are compelled to eat cooked cassava foofoo that is several days old and probably prepared in unhygienic environment. Instant Cassava foofoo is a hygienic and convenient way of enjoying cassava foofoo. This is because it is processed to eliminate the offensive smell of the ordinary foofoo, and can be prepared in one’s kitchen and made ready to eat within five minutes.
