How does your innovation work?
Cowpea (AKA black-eyed pea) is a high-protein superfood, well-suited to growing in even the dry, poor soil conditions of sub-Saharan Africa. It isn’t widely consumed in the region, however, due to the flatulence it causes – a problem that could be reduced by sugar-reducing enzymes, or by soaking and other techniques.
