WEIGHT LOSS AND FUFU/AKPU

A lot of people ask questions about Akpu, Fufu and weight loss weight loss. In the making of Akpu, the cassava is soaked for days fermented and then sieved, and the remaining is packed together and cooked to make akpu.

Since akpu is usually served in wraps, you need to put in mind that there might be differences in the calorie content of the one you eat, because not all of them are of the same size.

However, I would give the nutritional info for the smallest size of akpu usually sold in the market, which contains about approximately one cup of cassava if in flour state.


Calories in Fufu/Akpu

Calorie content: 330 calories

Out of this 330 calories,

Fat = 1gram
Carbohydrate = 78g

Protein = 3grams

Most time we eat 2 wraps of akpu, which is roughly 660 calories, and with this, you have not even added the calories from the soup you are eating!!!!

The akpu we eat is actually well concentrated in carbohydrate content, which is why it is very good for weight gain.

For those who want to gain weight, I would recommend lots of akpu/fufu for you. For those trying to lose weight….you know best!!!
