Also known as wild African mango nuts traditionally called ogbono in Nigeria, a delicious juicy fruit with a dry nut. The brown nuts is a substitute for egg for binding application in food especially where gluten free binders are required because of its gummy nature. We also use it for a special African delicacy ogbono soup, rich in antioxidants and weight loss agent because of its ability to supress apetite. It is one of the first soups a typical Nigerian mother from the Benin Empire will serve a guest. Ogbono soup is most times cooked with vegetables in Nigeria but serves as a binder in meals everywhere in the world. It is rich in fibre, antioxidants, iron, zinc, vitamins b and c. Ogbono is produced in large quantities in Nigeria and Cameroun.
