METHODS FOR THE DISSEMINATION OF FOOD PROCESSING TECHNOLOGIES: THE SOYBEAN EXAMPLE IN NIGERIA
The IDRC Soybean Utilization Project, jointly implemented by IITA and national institutes in Nigeria, has been successful in developing several different uses for soybean in foods and disseminating this technology to rural and urban people. This was found to have increased the production and utilization of soybean in Nigeria. The processes and technology developed during the project helped to overcome the technological constraints of promoting soybean use and to make it a common protein food in Nigeria. This can be used as a model for disseminating technologies developed on cassava.
