Abstract: Poundo-yam is a very popular food product in the yam production zone of West Africa. However, the traditional process for making poundo-yam is tedious, laborious, energy demanding, time consuming, and the pounding generates a large volume of sweat, not all of which escapes the food. In this research work a low speed single screw poundo-yam extruder was designed, fabricated using locally available materials and its performance evaluated.
