Abstract: The paper presents an overview of the various approaches to the pounding of Fufu. a common West African meal. In doing so, it describes the indigenous approach to Fufu pounding and highlights the drawbacks of this method. particularly its physical and health hazards, namely;lack of safety to operators and proneness to atmospheric contamination.Past attempts by Ghanaian inventors to ,.Produce mechanical devices as alternative to the indigenous approach are also examined it is pointed out that the mechanical devices have not been fully successful in producing Fufu of tire right plasticity and consistency as desired by Ghanaians. These machines have /Oiled because they are incapable of sufficiently pu/vensing the foodstuff due ro their inherent difficulties of sustaining the required power input. For best results. the boiled carbohydrate must be pulverised into a wet powdery form before binding itself into Fufu
