4 ways to identify chemically-treated Kpomo dangerous to your health

Many Nigerians enjoy eating cow hide. Kpomo, Ponmo, and Kanda are some of the common names for it. It's a common sight at parties, and for some, it's their favorite choice. In effect, no "assorted" is complete without Kpomo.

The Nigerian government tried to prohibit this meat three years ago, but it was met with opposition from the general public. However, there are no health benefits of eating this meal.

Because of how sweet and juicy it is, the majority of people like it in soups and sauces. It can be consumed on its own with a pepper sauce.

Kpomo is a low-calorie food that is extremely common among Nigerians. You can eat an entire plate of peppered Kpomo without feeling guilty.

The high demand for Kpomo has made it a lucrative industry, and the market has been flooded with many goods that are unsafe to consume, such as most high-demand products.

The government placed a ban on Kpomo some time back, but that hasn't stopped demand or supply, and the consistency of what's on the market remains a major concern.

One of the main concerns about Kpomo is why some traders want to keep it. Out of desperation, traders have resorted to using formaldehyde to preserve Kpomo, which is expected to be sold.

Formaldehyde, also known as formalin, is an anti-decay compound used to treat corpses. Kpomo sellers soak their goods in Formalin to make them bigger and thicker so they can sell them for more money.

This is particularly bad because, when formalin accumulates in the body, it can have a long-term effect on the liver and kidneys.

So keep an eye out for these four signs that Kpomo has been saturated in Formalin:


1. Get a smell of the odor

It's impossible to ignore the smell of Formalin-washed Kpomo. If it stinks to high heavens when you try to buy Kpomo, touch it and smell it with your fingertips, then drop it and run!

2. Size considerations

The thick Kpomo has been saturated in formalin. While sellers may say that it comes from the cow's head, it's safer to be safe than sorry. Please don't have them.

3. Examining Color

Kpomo comes in two variations on the market. The one in black and brown/white. It's the black people that should be stopped.

People avoid it because white Kpomo is incredibly difficult to come by, but this is since it is brand new. Another reason it's white is that it's been washed in hot water to remove the hair quickly.

4. Notify the seller.

This isn't going to work, but you never know. If you are the one who spends your money, then you have the right to inquire.

Cow leg purchase

That's the kit, that leg has a beautiful Kpomo piece and like white, it's rough.

It is a very good practice to buy from the killing directly from the slaughterhouse. That is what you see. This is what you see. The Kpomo is once more complicated.

The dry 'Ijebu' buy Kpomo Kika. Drink only in water overnight or a few hours before use.

In short, people come to Kpomo contaminated by:

• No-knowledge

• Size: 

It is easier to cook, which means less time.

Your health is important, so be careful that Kpomo is healthy but difficult. You should ensure it gets soft in time, and I'm going to share it soon. Take more advice from me.
