Soft, smooth and simple. Ogi, a local name for pap among the Yoruba and popularly called “akamu” by the Igbo, is a simple Nigerian breakfast meal made from fermented corn. Due to its high potassium content and lack of sodium, pap aids in the maintenance of high blood pressure. Due to its high water content, pap aids in the restoration of body fluid and the prevention of dehydration. It is quite beneficial to someone who is suffering from diarrhea.
