Salted Fish; Koobi, Momoni, Kako Is Dangerously Harmful To Your Health; Stop Eating It, According To a Dietician.
Momoni is seafood that has been sun-dried after being salted for one to two days and then fermented in tropical heat for six to ten hours, according to the Oxford Reference Dictionary.
Ms. Baidoo cautioned that eating salty marine dishes such as momoni, kako, and koobi has been linked to kidney problems. Ms. Baidoo claims that while these fish add flavor to dishes, they are not nutritionally superior.
“There are some foods that we do eat in Ghana, such as putrified fish called momoni, kako, and koobi,” she said on GTV yesterday.
“They are all high in salt, so eat in moderation.” They add flavor but no nutrition to the food. “They are dangerous flavors that cause significant kidney damage,” she says.
She advised Ghanaians to eat them in moderation because they contain a lot of sodium and can harm their kidneys. The kidneys filter waste from the body and excrete excess water while maintaining electrolyte balance.
