The Akpi (also called “Djansang” in Ghana, or “Okhuen” in Nigeria) is used often in dishes. It’s the seed of a wild fruit tree (Ricinodendron heudelotii) from tropical Africa.
The Akpi is used for seasoning of sauces, grills, garnish and accompaniment. It is crushed and added to warm sauces. It has a strong, nutty flavor and is rich in proteins, oil and potassium. Many people in Africa use it (besides for seasoning) also against constipation, eye infections and infertility.
It is also known as Munguella (Angola), Essessang (Cameroon), Bofeko (Zaire), Wama (Ghana), Kishongo (Uganda), Akpi (Cote d'Ivoire), Djansang, Essang, Ezezang and Njasang. The seeds are hard and require soaking or boiling
