Food Expert Stresses Importance Of Hyfiba To Boosting Immunity Against Diseases


 The Chief Executive Offi­cer of Spectra Industries Limited, Duro Kuteyi, has stressed the need for Nigerians to regularly consume food products made from sorghum and soyabeans such as Hyfiba Sorghum-Soy meal to boost their immune system and wade off coronavirus in­fections and other health related issues.

He made the call when the company donated a truck load of the product to the Lagos state government as part of its efforts to sup­port the state government to cushion the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic among people in the state.

Kuteyi said that the prod­uct, Hyfiba Sorghum-Soy is one of the highly sought food products in the state which is capable of helping to control diabetics, improve digestive health, among oth­er health benefits.

“The product is made from sorghum and soyabean. Sor­ghum has many health ben­efits. It is a non-wheat grain that offers a dietary option to people with celiac disease may help control diabetes, improve digestive health, among other benefits.

“According to the USDA National Nutrient Data­base, sorghum is a power­house of nutrients. When included in the diet, it can provide nearly half of the daily required protein, a significant amount of dietary fiber, and B-vita­mins vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin, as well as high levels of magnesium, iron, copper, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium,” he said.

Speaking on its digestive health potential, Kuteyi said Sorghum is one of the best foods for dietary fiber, adding that a cup of its grains contains almost 13 grams of dietary fiber, meaning that your diges­tive tract keeps food moving along smoothly, preventing cramping, bloating, consti­pation, stomach aches, ex­cess gas, and diarrhea.

“Sorghum has antican­cer potential, has complex carbohydrates to manage diabetes, has gluten-free grain option, improves bone health, increases circula­tion, and contains energy boosting nutrients,” he said.

Remi Kuteyi, Executive Director of the company, while presenting the prod­ucts to the State’s Com­missioner for Agriculture, Gbolahan Lawal, at the Lagos State Government Warehouse, 21st Century Warehouse, in Ikeja, said the gesture was part of the company’s Corporate So­cial Responsibility (CSR), considering the efforts the state has made so far to as­sist vulnerable people.

“The state government has been helping the vulner­able people during the lock­down and we felt that our company, operating in Lagos State should be part of the efforts the state is making.

“A bag of each of prod­uct contains 12 packs. Hy­fiba Meal is a highly nutri­tious product made from Sorghum and Soyabean. It can be made like Amala or Tuwo as swallow,” she said.
