    Things like this happen when you don't have a functional regulatory agency that will prosecute these people.

  5. Nigerians are the most wicked when it comes to preparing food for others to eat. Everything is money no value for human life. I will never buy them again to eat but again wetin person go eat for naija. Even if you cook at home, foodstuff from market are rippened with carbide, cooking fruits. We need to have food inspectors that check all these evil acts. Use panadol cook meat, cook fruits to ripen fruits, transformer oil to fry akara/potato, mix soya beans with akara to fry e.t.c. wicked set of people

    1. You have said it all,very wicked act! No food is safe from their evil deeds,how can one use carbide to rippened fruits? Or that disgusting one of using paracetamol to cook goat meat? Kai the list is endless

      Delete
    2. Another one is grinding ripe paw paw with fresh tomatoes to make stew
      Using animal fat to mix with veg oil to fry these roadside yam cause using veg oil alone is more expensive

    3. I used to think my mum just love stressing herself when we were growing up,she made us do everything we eat from scratch.I mean why can't we just buy Akara and moi moi from outside instead of picking beans and still going to grind it.just too much stress.Or is it the bitterleaf,ugwu and scent leaf she planted at our backyard?She hates eating outside.When I started living alone,I eat out almost everyday plus work stress.

      Since I started following recipes on YouTube,my eating out has really reduced.I try my best to prepare my own meals.That way I monitor my salt,maggi,oil and spices in my food.Because some restaurants and fast food need profit,they don't care about your health oh.

  12. I don't eat outside my house, any food I don't know how or trust the cook, I no eat.
    I worked at a buka in lagos, I was one of the cool, my madam employed her relative to be the one in charge of clearing and washing dishes.
    We taught she was being fair and not minding the rest of us cooking and restocking our buka.
    It was a road side buka built with bamboos.
    Later I observed the girl called itohan will recycle unfinished food and repackage and resell, she will carefully cut out the leftover swallow.. No matter how small, she will still use it.
    I moved to a more better restaurant and low and behold, I was shocked with how they buy in bulk and preserve them.
    Chai, we bring our own food from home and madam also, I can name the food I eat there.
    This woman is a witch, I can't even bring myself to say what I saw, it's hard to believe, you go fear fear..
    A Co worker that left after she and madam clashed, reason was her cousin came to shop and wanted to eat, but the lady insisted they leave, cousin insisted oh, na so madam suspect her for bad market, since then madam gave her hell.
    The girl went to police but madam bribed her way.
    Me I left there years ago, I heard she is late now..
    I will just advice you to avoid these listed food outside.
    Dry fish
    Fried chips
    Dodo
    Pomo in all forms
    Egusi soup
    Pepper soup
    Banga soup

    If you must eat, eat something you can rinse.. As in wash for example
    Fruits.. Don't be too lazy to peel your fruits
    You won't die of hunger till you can eat proper food.

    1. It was last week that I learnt at the salon that some mkt women refry garri to be very crispy and mix it with peeled melon. From there,they grind the melon/garri mix to make it much.
      When you buy those already grounded melon in the market to cook,it will have a different kind of paste. Very light and dosent smell so much like melon.
      Better to buy the peeled ones and grind on your own

    2. You say what ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    3. Marvel the day I stopped buying already ground melon from the market was when I bought a little quantity, took home to grind myself because I was in a hurry and found a whole loop earring while washing. omg i shock ooo. that's what they would have blended together for me to eat.

  15. So many inconsiderate people doing business on the streets of Nigeria.

    To make things worse, there are no functioning regulatory agencies, or there are but they are not doing their jobs.

    Many Nigerian businesses continue to do things that will endanger the lives of Nigerians. They forgot that if people starts having serious health issues, then, start dieing, they will run out of business.

    Stop the evil!!!

      Anon ..they melt white nylons,those ones used to baggage satchet pure water into hot oil,it blends with oil then they fry.
      When the plantain chips cool,they set stiff and won't break easily.

    That was how I bought fresh tomatoes sometime ago. They were so fresh and red that I washed one and decided to eat it. I spat it out as soon it touched my tongue. Fresh red tomato was very bitter, bitter. I disposed the rest. I now understood what happened to one stew I made that was bitter. I thought it was the pepper seeds (bell pepper or tatashe) I didn't remove them before grinding in the market. Till today I don't know what they used to ripen the them that caused he bitterness but I know it is an harmful chemical

    2. Next time remove the seeds from the tatashe before blending. I hate those very red tomatoes tho

      Delete
    3. I remove them before blending but this particular day,I was in a hurry, I let the woman grind them like that

      Delete
    4. Sorry, but the bitterness may not be from chemicals. I grow tomatoes and know it depends on the seedling. They naturally have a tartness. Sometimes, it's stronger and is in the skin. This is why sometimes your stew tastes 'bitter' and other times it doesn't. It all depends on the tartness. Unfortunately, I haven't found a sure way to tell yet, but I am working on it.

    5. Just buy from the mallams. They sell the best with real tomato taste although more expensive.

    From today I will not buy again o

  21. My mum owns a poultry in the east. One woman came to meet my mum to say she wanted to invest in the business. We asked my mum to tell her to write a business plan on how she wanted the business to progress and solutions.
    Her plan to for my mum to use growth hormones so that instead of rearing the chickens for 12 weeks, they will reduce it to 6 to 7 weeks by pumping them with hormones, and reduce cost of feeding too.
    My mum told her not to contact her again. She said my mum wasn’t a good business woman because she was using organic food and raising the birds for 12 weeks.

  22. Lord have mercy on thy children.
    Every home should try and invest in a mandolin slicer, make your own chips ( plantain and patatoes)
    Heart of man is desperately wicked.

  23. The sad thing is that for us who live abroad, it is only the foods from Nigeria that have been altered. Food from other African countries are still fine. We all have a problem that is endemic in Nigeria and it’s from the top all the way to the grassroots.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's not true for me. Sometimes the food from African countries are affected by the things US customs sprays on them and how long they were at the port. Other times, it's the sellers abroad who adulterate the food. I've gotten bad batches of things from different countries and learned it depends on how they came in.

  24. I believe this.
    Bought very ripe chips at the market last week and wondered why it's hard and not soft like the one we dey at home..

    Thank you for this post.

  25. I stopped eating akpu/fufu the day I read in Punch how chlorine and hypo are used in the process.

    Reason?

    To make the paste rise for more profits.

    Life expectancy is low in Nigeria because of poor diet worsen by sharp practices. Organs failure have sent a lot of people to the world yonder.

  26. To think these same people will crucify their government like they are any better. No big surprise my cousin doesn't eat out. He takes out time during the end of the week to rear his poultries and look after all his food produce. At first, I chuckled to think he bought a costly land close to his house just for the sake of his stomach but now, I see it goes beyond that and it was worth all the stress.
    Every food products out there is been contaminated one way or the other to make easy wealth. This is not amusing any longer.

  28. Thank God i don't eat plantain chips.
    It's really not wise to buy and eat things along the road. For Christ sake, you don't know how it was processed.

  29. Evil thrives when good men do nothing.

    Please, let's report any food vendor, market women and men engaged in such adulteration of foods to NAFDAC, Ministry of Health and Consumer Protection Council in your State.

  32. It might be true. Someone I know bought this traffic plantain chips and from there instantly she landed in the hospital with serious vomiting and stooling....

  33. I wonder though... how does the plastic stay on the chip? I mistakenly put plastic in oil once and it shriveled up into a ball. So, scientists in the house, can you help us explain how this can happen before I castigate an industry?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wouldn't food fried with plastic be water-proof and last forever? Hmm. I've read similar posts on Asian and American foods and people have tried to show it's impossible for this to happen, especially with the kind of plastic we have in Nigeria. Video evidence or I don't believe it. Food poisoning can be a reaction to a natural ingredient too or even something you ate before your last meal. Not all reactions are to unnatural things.

  35. Some of us here are gradually weaning off our food after hearing horrible tales and cutting $8yam that turned purple inside. We heard they dry fish & shrimps with formaldehyde and spray nitrous oxide to make unripe plantain look bright yellow when you buy it and black by the time it gets home. Formaldehyde is used as a preservative in the lab and other places I’d rather not mention. Most ethnic stores are wicked. They change the expiration date on mcvities cookies and Jacob’s crackers and sell adulterated and expired food. For those who buy cream there, your crusader or other bleaching corticosteroids by whatever brand name probably expired 4 years ago. The State doesn’t inspect or care because it’s patrons are black immigrants and they honestly couldn’t care less. I haven’t cooked with palm oil in over a decade, I’d rather use canola or corn oil or olive oil to cook and the chips I buy are from central or Latin American
    countries where they also eat plantain. Thank God plantain is now in many Walmart’s and regular grocery stores but I didn’t raise my children on Naija food. The reason is exactly what is now happening.

    Besides take $120 to the ethnic store you come out with 3 or 4 bags. Take the same to the regular grocers and you get more bang for your buck in addition to the fact that they pull the expired stuff since they report to goverment and get inspected. Bless the person who told me about oatmeal “Amala” as it’s the major solid my husband and I eat with jute from Latin America. The desperation of naijas for shady undeserved money is mind boggling.
