e’Pap was developed in 2001 by Basil Kransdorf, a South African industrial chemist who became a social entrepreneur. It is a pre-cooked porridge that is a blend of maize, soya, sorghum, vitamins and minerals, which are in a highly absorbable form. It is:
- Pre-cooked which means the nutritional value won’t be diminished by boiling
- A saving on gas & electricity
- Easy to serve – just mix with water or milk
- Packed with flavour, and best of all vitamins
Vitamins are added into the mixture in a form that the body can easily absorb. As a result of this quick absorbability, improvements in children’s health are quickly seen. Lee, one of our Knysna children, had sores on her chin when we first started her on e’Pap. The pictures below show that within two weeks her skin was clear. This is seen in many of our children. In a short space of time, their energy improves, they concentrate better and skin condition improves.
How do you prepare e’Pap?
Preparing e’Pap is very easy. All you need to do is mix it with clean water – cool or warm water will do. Don’t boil e’Pap as this will take out all e’Pap’s goodness. You can still use e’Pap to make pancakes or bake muffins. You can also mix your e’Pap with milk, fruit juice or fermented milk. Why not make an eSmoothie with e’Pap, fruit, fermented dairy, honey and nuts?
