Please tell me you don't eat any cassava-based foods (bread, eba, etc) sad you must enjoy those chemically-treated processed-foods, like canned-egusi, canned-tuna, canned-dodo, canned-pounded yam, canned-bushmeat, canne.... grin

As a poster rightly said, Garri may cause one to lose his/her eyesight. Cassava itself contains cyanide which is a poison itself, that is why we dry and fry grinned cassava to remove the poison.

Garri can be categorise into 2

1. White garri- the garri is white in colour as the name implies. The only benefit as that it contain fibre and also contains huge amount of carbohydrates.

2. Yellow garri - It is yellow in colour and benefits include carbohydrates, vitamin A (good for eyesight), fibre and vitamin C. The extra vitamins comes from the fact that the garri (crushed dry cassava) has been fried with palm oil instead of vegetable oil.

Again Garri is very good but don't eat it too much (3 times a day everyday is excessive).

Although the best garri is Ijebu garri because of the zero cyanide contain (but also very acidic)

Garri affecting eyesight;
well, it depends on the garri processed. Cassava contains cyanide (u all know that anyway), which is a nephrotoxin and neurotoxin i.e it damages d kidneys and nerves. Therefore it affects eyesight.
The best garri to drink is IJEBU GARRI, cos it contains minimal to zero cyanide. If u wanna kno the original, then know these facts:
1) Garri that is tasteless is poison, only the sour variety is original
2) If u pour garri inside water, it must foam up, at least a bit. If not, throw it away
3) lastly, garri must swell up in water, if it just swims in it, drown it in the gutter.

So,garri is good, but i dont like mine with milk. Peanuts will dowink

Those who say Garri drinking is a sign of poverty must have been poverty-stricken once in their life-time. Garri has saved a lot of lives and will continue to save students lives. Its health benefit surpasses any adverse effects. It is proudly Nigerian

Good points with soaking garri are, Garri water is good for diarrhea and garri itself can ease constipation. It is also important to avoid taking garri that ia not well dried as it can contain some amount of cyanide. This is one of the numerous causes of goitre.

Keep deceiving yourself.How many resturant do you see selling garri even dieticians wont recommend garri as a food ? The whole idea behind garri is poverty-driven.Just like eating pomo and claiming to be deriving nutrients from it.there is difference between six and half a dozen. tongue also, you are at a risk of contacting Lassa fever if you drink garri so stop it asap. cheesy
