The study aims
to determine the knowledge of Akufo community in cassava flour processing,
to disseminate, processing of cassava–pigeon pea fortified products and
assess the consumer acceptability of the products.  A pre-test was conducted for the women;
they were assessed for socio-economic status and previous knowledge in cassava
processing. Six (6) cassava products were processed in participation with
the trainees and the trainees women were used as panelists to sensory
analysis. A post-test was also conducted after the training to assess
knowledge after training. The result showed that most of the participants
were in the age range of 51-60 (50%) and with farming as the dominant work
(28.6%). The majority of the participants’ education status was secondary
school (50%). Post-test results showed that the participants increased food
processing understanding and 85.7% showed interest in processing the
products disseminated for income generation.
