Accra Market Tou Zaafi (Tou Corn Flour)

US $5.75


This product is derived from African millet grounded and left to undergo a lactic acid fermentation. Millet is one of the most nutritious and easily digested of all grains; and it is high in starch, making it a good high-energy food.

However, like other grains, it is low in calcium, Vitamins A, C, D, and B12, but high in phosphorus, other B vitamins, and iron -- which is higher in millet than any other grain with the exception of amaranth and quinoa (not members of the Grass Family). Millet is very rich in amino acids. The protein content may vary from 5-20%, but generally averages 10-12%. Millet is considered superior to wheat because its proteins are more easily digested, despite remaining low in lysine.
