NRI Cassava Programme

This research project aims at determining the true retention of carotenoids in yellow-fleshed cassava during processing into gari, fufu and determination of nutrients of importance in cassava leaves. This will lead to evidenced based processing methods that reduce Vitamin A loses during processing.
