Golden Tropics Plantain Fufu 680g



Plaintain Fufu is made by mashing plantain either singly or a combination of cassava, yam or rice into smooth round dough eaten with traditional African vegetable soup or stew.

It is also called foofoo, foufou, fufu. In East Africa, it is referred to as Ugali and Cous cous in French speaking African countries.

Fufu is a staple African food. From Kigali through Lagos to Accra, you will often see women pounding foofoo in large mortar with an equally large pestle. This rich source of complex carbohydrate is also eaten by Africans outside Africa.

Fufu is rich in complex starch and constitute a high fibre diet. Because most African foods is high fibre based like fufu, bowel diseases are a rarity amongst Africans.



Unripe plantain (100%) No added sugar, colour or preservatives.


Traditionally, what ever is chosen to make fufu (plantain or cassava for example), is brought to boil until it becomes tender, and then placed in a mortar and crushed or pounded until it becomes soft and smooth in consistency or texture.

Thanks to modern technology. You can get yam, rice, plantain, cocoyam, or cassava grounded into powder already, from which fufu can easily be made without having to pound or pre-boil.

You can boil your own yam or plantain (ripe or black plantain) and mash it up using an electric food processor or purpose built blender if you are keen on doing it yourself.

Fufu types are classified by the kind of starch tuber or grain from which they are made.


Keep cool, dry. Seal tightly after opening.
