CASSAVA FLOUR PRODUCTION IN NIGERIA; HOW VIABLE?

Cassava is the most important root crop in Nigeria. Apart from being a staple crop in both rural and urban household’s cassava is a major source of income to cassava farmers and processors in the rural areas.

Cassava alone contributes about 45% of agricultural GDP in Nigeria for food or domestic purposes but its industrial processing and utilization has been very limited.

Currently, the country produces about 40,000,000 tonnes of the commodity and due to the desire of the federal government to reduce import dependency and conserve of scare foreign exchange, there is national programme aimed at increasing the production cassava flour to be substituted with wheat flour.

High Quality Cassava Flour {HQCF} is made by cooking, drying and grinding cassava root to a fine powder. It differs from Tapioca flour in that Tapioca flour is made from the starch of the cassava plant where the cassava flour is the ground root.

High Quality Cassava Flour {HQCF} is used as substitute for wheat flour in bakery and confectionary products.

The demand for High Quality Cassava Flour {HQCF} in Nigeria is high. The driving force behind the demand is the federal government policy on cassava flour inclusion in wheat flour for cassava wheat composite flour production especially for bread and confectionary baking.

The annual national demand for High Quality Cassava Flour {HQCF} is estimated at 750,000 tonnes while the national supply estimate is about 50,000 tonnes. The High Quality Cassava Flour {HQCF} industry in Nigeria is dominated by small scale with production capacity of less than 0.1 tons per day. The production plants are usually found all parts of Nigeria where the chief raw material, Cassava tubers, can be found.

The major challenges facing the industry are access to power. Non availability of power hampers production and increases the cost of production.

High Quality Cassava Flour {HQCF} is also used in the paper board and plywood industries.

The major machinery and equipment for production of cassava are

· Granulator

· Flash Fryer

· Hydraulic Press

· Detoxifier

· Vibro Sieve

· Hammer Mill Grater

· Hammer Mill with Cyclone

· Weighing Machine

It is estimated that at 10% inclusion, the demand by flour millers is 550,000 tonnes.
