Nigeria produces a wide range of agricultural commodities, which could serve as raw materials for industrial production in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world.
Below is the list of the products we export:
Cocoa (Theobroma Cacao) is grown principally in West Africa. Cocoa powder is essentially used as flavor in biscuits, ice cream, dairy drinks and cakes. Apart from its use as a flavor, it is also used in the manufacture of coatings for confectioners or frozen desserts. Cocoa powder is also consumed by the beverage industry for example for the preparation of chocolate milk.
Besides the traditional uses in chocolate manufacture and confectionery, cocoa butter is also used in the manufacture of tobacco, soap and cosmetics. It is also a folk remedy for burns, cough, dry lips, fever, malaria, rheumatism, snakebite and wounds. It is reported to have antiseptic and diuretic effects.
Cashew nuts, like all nuts, are an excellent source of protein and fiber. They are rich in mono-unsaturated fat which may help protect the heart. Cashew nuts are also a good source of potassium, B vitamins and folate. They contain useful amounts of magnesium, phosphorous, selenium and copper.
The properties of Kola are the same as caffeine, modified only by the presence of astringents. Fresh Kola Nuts have stimulant action apart from the caffeine content, but as they appear in commerce, their action is indistinguishable from that of other caffeine drugs and Kola red is inert. Kola is a valuable nervine, heart tonic, and a good general tonic.
Palm oil is derived from the flesh of the fruit of the oil palm species E. Guineensis. In its virgin form, the oil is bright orange-red due to the high content of carotene.
Palm oil is semi-solid at room temperature; a characteristic brought about by its approx. 50 percent saturation level. Palm oil (and its products) has good resistance to oxidation and heat at prolonged elevated temperatures; hence, making palm oil an ideal ingredient in frying oil blends. Manufacturers and end-users around the world incorporate high percentages of palm oil in their frying oil blends for both performance and economic reasons. In fact, in many instances, palm oil has been used as 100 percent replacement for traditional hydrogenated seed oils such as soybean oil and canola. Products fried in palm oil include potato chips, french fries, doughnuts, ramen noodles and nuts.
Another positive attribute of palm oil as a frying oil is that it imparts longer shelf life to the fried products; generally attributed to comfortable level of unsaturation, absence of linolenic acid and presence of natural antioxidants in the oil.
Palm oil, because of its natural solid-liquid content, is suitable for use in high percentages in vegetable oil shortenings, biscuit fats and bakery fats. In margarine production, palm oil is highly suited as a component as it imparts the desirable beta prime crystalline tendency in the fat blend. Palm oil’s natural semi-solid consistency means need for no or little hydrogenation.
Palm oil and many of its products mention below also find uses as ice cream fats, in vanaspati, soups mixes – dry and canned, with little or no further modifications.
Coconut milk is made by processing grated coconut with hot water or milk, which extracts the oil and aromatic compounds. It should not be confused with coconut water, and has a fat content around 17%. When refrigerated and left to set, coconut cream will rise to the top and separate from the milk. The milk is used to produce virgin coconut oil by controlled heating and removing the oil fraction. Virgin coconut oil is found superior to the oil extracted from copra for cosmetic purposes. The leftover fiber from coconut milk production is used as livestock feed.
Charcoal is the dark grey residue consisting of impure carbon obtained by removing water and other volatile constituents from animal and vegetation substances. Charcoal is usually produced by slow pyrolysis, the heating of wood, sugar, bone char, or other substances in the absence of oxygen (see pyrolysis, char and biochar). The resulting soft, brittle, lightweight, black, porous material resembles coal and is 50% to 95% carbon.
Commercial charcoal is found in either lump, briquette, or extruded forms:
- Lump charcoal is made directly from hardwood material and usually produces far less ash than briquettes.
- Briquettes are made by compressing charcoal, typically made from sawdust and other wood by-products, with a binder and other additives. The binder is usually starch. Some briquettes may also include brown coal (heat source), mineral carbon (heat source), borax, sodium nitrate (ignition aid), limestone (ash-whitening agent), raw sawdust (ignition aid), and other additives like paraffin or petroleum solvents to aid in ignition.
Extruded charcoal is made by extruding either raw ground wood or carbonized wood into logs without the use of a binder. The heat and pressure of the extruding process hold the charcoal together. If the extrusion is made from raw wood material, the extruded logs are then subsequently carbonized.
Charcoal is sometimes used to power commercial road vehicles—usually buses—in countries where oil is scarce or completely unavailable.
In the developed world, charcoal briquettes are widely used for outdoor grilling and barbecues in backyards and on camping trips.
In many non-industrialized countries, charcoal is used for everyday cooking by a large portion of the population
As with other seafood, shrimp is high in calcium, iodine and protein but low in food energy. A shrimp-based meal is also a significant source of cholesterol, from 122 mg to 251 mg per 100g of shrimp, depending on the method of preparation. Shrimp consumption, however, is considered healthy for the circulatory system because the lack of significant levels of saturated fat in shrimp means that the high cholesterol content in shrimp actually improves the ratio of LDL to HDL cholesterol and lowers triglycerides
We are open to look into your area of interest to see if we have it in large quantities for supply.
Soybean (Glycine Max) is a legume. It is an important source of high quality and inexpensive protein and oil. With an average protein content of 40% and oil content of 20%, soybean has the highest protein content of all food crops and is second only to groundnuts in terms of oil content amongst food legumes.
The oil produced from soybean is highly digestible and contains no cholesterol. Soybean is the largest single source of edible oil and accounts for roughly 50% of the total seed oil production worldwide. Nigeria has only one variety of soybeans which is yellow in colour.
Soybeans is used for production of milk, edible oil and animal feeds. It is also useful in the treatment of malnourished children particularly in the sub-Saharan, Asian and Latin American countries.
Cotton (Gossypium) is a major agricultural and industrial crop in Nigeria. The crop provides both food and fibre for the rapidly expanding vegetable oil and textile industries.
Cassava (Manihot esculenta), also called yuca or manioc, is a woody shrub of the Euphorbiaceae (spurge family) native to Central/West Africa and South America. Cassava is extensively cultivated as an annual crop in tropical and subtropical regions for its edible starchy tuberous root, a major source of carbohydrates. Nigeria is the world’s largest producer of cassava.
Cassava is the third-largest source of carbohydrates for meals in the world. Cassava is classified as sweet or bitter depending on the level of toxic cyanogenic glucosides
Cassava-based dishes are widely consumed. Some of these dishes have regional, national, or ethnic importance. Cassava must be cooked properly to detoxify it before it is eaten.
Sesame seeds (sesamum indicum) belong to the plant family Pedaliaceae. it is an important oilseed crop believed to have originated from tropical Africa. 25% of world sesame seed hecterage is planted in Africa and Nigeria is one of the major producers of sesame seed in Africa. It is found predominantly in Benue and Jigawa States in Northern Nigeria. It is one of the oldest food and cash crop in Nigeria which is produced in 21 states of the Federation.
Sesame seed is used for oil, roasted seed, soup, spice, seed, confectionary, industrial raw material for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics soap etc.
The shea tree (Butyrospermum Parkii) is a precious natural resource which grows in the wild across the Sudan-Sahelian region of Africa.
Apart from its role as an important raw material shea butter is used in the manufacture of chocolate and other confectioneries. It is also used in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.
