 REVIEW OF PREVIOUS WORK ON CASSAVA CYANOGENIC GLYCOSIDES

 Executive summary

 Cassava is one of the most important root and tuber crops, providing nourishment for more than half a billion people the world over. It derives its importance from the fact that it is a valuable source

The Cassava: Adding Value for Africa (C:AVA) Project is currently developing value chains for HQCF in Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, Nigeria and Malawi. This will improve the livelihoods and incomes of at least 90,000 smallholder households as direct beneficiaries, including women and disadvantaged groups. It promotes the use of HQCF as a versatile raw material for which diverse markets exist.
