The difference between yellow garri and white garri

Garri is often made in two variations; white and yellow. Yellow garri is prepared by adding palm oil just before the fermenting stage of the cassava mash. White garri on the other hand is fried without the addition of palm oil.

Ijebu garri is one of the varieties of garri made in west Africa. Its produced mainly by the Yoruba people of Ijebu Origin in western Nigeria. It has a pleasantly sour taste that is great for soaking.

Ijebu garri is commonly consumed by soaking in it and water and drinking it. It is also great for making Eba.

Garri undergoes Microbial deterioration if not properly stored. The main agents that contaminate and spoil garri are mould, insects, and mites. Growth of mould in garri results in changes in the organoleptic, microbiological, and nutritive quality which lead to spoilage.
