Garri is produced from cassava tubers and popularly known in Africa. It is one of popular edible food in west Africa. Especially in Nigeria. Whether mechanical garri production or manual production, the processes involved in garri production are roughly similar. It mainly includes washing and peeling, crushing, fermentation, dewatering and frying. In this article I will show you how the processes involved in garri production.
1. Washing and peeling
Usually knives will be used to peel the cover of the cassava. Then use a lot of water to wash the peeled cassava by hands.
If you have a large scale garri production, dry sieve, paddle washer and cassava peeling machine are needed.
Dry sieve machine is to remove attached impurities. In the paddle washer machine, first layer of cassava tubers can be removed. After that, cassava peeling machine is used to remove the second layer of roots. At the same time when cassava is peeled, spray water will be open to clean and wash cassava roots. The 2 garri producction machines achieve its functions all by means of friction.
Cassava cleaning and peeling machine
Firstly you can cut the cassava tubers into medium sizes by knife. This is because smaller sizes increases the speed which will save labor for cassava crushing. Then the peeled cassava roots are crushed by cassava grater machine. At this stage, people usually choose crushing cassava by machine. Because the machine can save time and labor. After crushing, we can get cassava mash.
Cassava crushing machine
The grated cassava is pulpy which needs to be packed into bags for fermentation. At least 2 days later, cassava mash fermentation is finished.
Someone will squeeze the water by simple wood board. Water is squeezed out by pressure and gravity.
If you want to be fully dewatered. Put bags containing fermented cassava mash into hydraulic press machine to complete dehydration process and get wet cakes with moisture around 40%.
Cassava dewatering machine
Pouring the dewatered cassava into the pot for frying and stirrer constantly. Also there need enough firewood for fire to fry the dewatered cassava.
If you want to get high quality and good taste garri, you can use food grade stainless steel frying machine to ensure hygiene of finished product.
This is the whole processes involved in garri production. If you want to produce high quality and large garri, the garri production machine will be a good choice. Contact us to get more information about garri production machine.
