The way it works is quite simple. Oatmeal Fufu will make you feel full faster therefore you eat less than the number of other fufu meal wraps you would normally consume.

It’s a healthy fiber-rich substitute for traditional solids. This does not mean I am against eating pounded yam, garri, Eba, Amala, etc. All these foods can be a part of a healthy meal.

Besides, it makes you feel full for a long time thus fewer food cravings between meals.

It is perfect for those who want to lose weight or uphold a healthy weight.
