Pengayaan Nutrisi (fortifikasi) pada Olahan Singkong Berbasis Partisipatoris


Southern Malang region is the center of cassava producers in Malang Raya area. In Tempursari Village, Donomulyo District, Malang Regency, processing of cassava has not been done optimally. There has been limited effort to enrich the processed cassava with additional high nutrition. Cassava peel waste also has not been utilized optimally by the residents. Therefore, counseling and advocacy activities of nutrition enrichment technology on cassava processing is essential to be applied. Service activities were done through diffusion activities related to the application of cassava processing technology to Islamic Women Organization based on Nahdhatul Ulama (Muslimat-NU) board in Tempursari Village, Donomulyo District, Malang in a participatory way.
