3 amazing things you need to know about OGBONO

Published

on

Irvingia gabonensis

You will probably be wondering, what is this?

That is the scientific name for the condiment for the famous African delicacy: ogbono

Personally , I love this soup to the moon and back, it reminds me so much of my grandma. She actually taught me how to prepare this soup. Follow me if you want to find out my traditional recipe.

Apart from being a delicious soup condiment, the ogbono seeds and other parts of the tree have tremendous benefits. It is also known as biri by the Hausa, apon by the Yoruba, ogwi by the Benin, bush mango, dika bread tree etcetera. Funny enough, even though it is called a bush mango it is in no way similar to the mango fruit .

The ogbono tree is prevalent in wet and dry tropical areas. It is grown in farmlands, canopied bushes or gallery forests. .

KEY BENEFITS OF OGBONO

1] EDIBLE PURPOSES

   The Irvingia gabonensis fruit can be eaten as a fresh fruit. The pulp can be juiced and used for making jelly and smoothies. The seeds can be pressed for oil and the dried seeds can be used to prepare ogbono soup, chocolates ( interesting) and stew.

2] ANTIDIABETIC PROPERTIES

    Ngondi et el [ 2005] agrees that the ogbono seed is capable of reducing glucose levels in obese patients and study has also validated that the extracts from the leaf and barks of the Irvingia gabonensis tree has more antidiabetic activity than the ethanolic extracts.

3] REGULATION OF CHOLESTEROL LEVELS

    Study has shown that obese patients who were given Irvingia gabonensis had a significant decrease in cholesterol making ogbono suitable for its regulation.

4] WEIGHT LOSS AND MANAGEMENT

   You say whaaaaaat, I love this particular benefit. Study on the African mango has shown that it suppresses hunger and helps to minimize food intake.

5] DYE

   The juicy fruit pulp, not only is it just edible but can also be used to produce black dye for materials and shoes. The roots and barks of the tree also contain tannin, which is also suitable for dyeing.
