Episode 08: Three African Superfoods

Three African Superfoods

African local herbs, fruits, vegetables and grains have quite often been the basis of the global ‘superfoods’ industry which is worth an estimated $43 billion dollars every year. In this episode, we feature Teff, the Ethiopian grain favoured by Hollywood actresses, Hibiscus, which commonly consumed as a drink in much of west Africa, as well as the scientifically proven anti-inflammatory benefits of the fruit Tamarind. We also answer questions sent in from Nigeria & the UK.

You can also listen to the full episode on YouTube, iTunes & SoundCloud.
