Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato (OFSP)

More than 95% of the world’s sweet potato crop is grown in developing countries, where it is the fifth most important food crop. African farmers produce about 7 million tons of sweet potato annually, mostly for human consumption. It is an extremely rich source of beta-carotene, an naturally occurring pigment that the body converts into vitamin A. Eating orange sweet potato has been shown to improve vitamin A status of children (Source: international potato center).
In Ghana, Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato is promoted by the Government of Ghana (Ministry of Health) due to its exceptional high amount of dietary nutrients which protect infants during pregnancy. Nonetheless, It has little received attention of promotions through cultivation at various rural community by farmers. Hence, Mangrove as a Non-Profit Organisation possesses and its equipped with the Know-how on Production/Cultivation of OFSP to accomplish the Feed the Future’s Core indicator of combating food insecurity and mal-nutrition.

A recent study has also shown that the glandular substances in edible snail meat cause agglutination of certain bacteria, which could be of value in fighting a variety of ailments, including whooping cough. Edible snails also play an important role in folk medicine.

In Ghana, the bluish liquid obtained from the shell when the meat has been removed is believed to be good for infant development. The high iron content of the meat is considered important in treating anaemia. In the past, it was recommended for combating ulcers and asthma.
