Garri, a beloved delicacy, pairs well with vegetable and palm oil-heavy soups. It might not be best to eat and soak garri as your only source of nutrition. The nutritional value of garri soaked in water is insufficient, and taking too much of it may be detrimental. When you're likely to be more active in the afternoon, eating garri can help you recuperate from your day's activities and maintain your energy levels.
Garri contains a lot of sugar, thus diabetics should avoid eating it. Additionally, eating garri is not advised for expectant mothers. Garri has been associated with a number of health issues, and I hope to clarify those concerns here.
Here are the categories of people who should avoid eating Garry:
1. People suffering from eye defects
According to Mayo Clinic, cassava, which is used to produce garri, contains hydrocyanic acid, which has been linked to eye issues in neonates. You could experience partial blindness or another severe eye condition if you drink too much of the garri's acid. On the other hand, a careful, thorough, and secure processing of garri can lower the acid concentration to a more tolerable level.
2. People suffering from obesity
The tuber of the cassava plant, which is high in carbs, is used to make garri. Nearly 360 calories, or about 99 percent of the total, are in only one cup of garri. Garri contains a lot of carbohydrates, so eating too much of it might make you gain weight and retain water.
3. People suffering from ulcer
Cyanide acid, which is present in garri, can exacerbate the signs of an already-existing ulcer and lead to digestive issues. Because eating too much garri can have harmful consequences on the body, anyone who has ulcers should be careful not to do so.
