HAITI AND MUD COOKIES
TITLE – HAITI AND MUD COOKIES
TODAY’S REALITY :
If I ask, what are the basic resources which we need to survive in today’s world..?? The reply will be MONEY and FOOD. That’s true… When we are hungry and if we have money in our hand, we go out to buy our favourite food stuff like pizza, burger, french fries, noodles, pastries, cookies etc… to feed our tummy.
PARALLEL LIVING – WITHOUT RESOURCES :
But do you know, there are many people who don’t have these basic resources too for living, then, how will they feed their tummy..??? There are few countries, where people don’t have even the basic resources like food and money. Then how will they be feeding their tummy…???
LIFE OF HAITIANS :
HAITI, one of the poorest countries in the Western hemisphere, don’t even have the basic resources for their everyday life and due to the scarcity of food and money, in the country, people started feeding their tummy with the DIRT.
MUD COOKIES IN HAITI :
People in HAITI are eating dirt in the form of cookies, which are also called “MUD COOKIES ”, Galette or bonbon tè.. The scarcity of food has turned mud into cookies, for the Haitians.
MUD AS A SUPPLEMENT :
It is believed that, due to the mineral content in the mud, the cookies were given as a dietary supplement to pregnant women and children. The Haitian’s believed that the mud has calcium in it which can be used as antacid and also for nutrition too.
MUD COOKIES AND HAITI :
In Haiti, almost 80% of the population is below the poverty line. This made the starving locals desperate for food and created cookies from mud for their survival. Sadly speaking, the people of Haiti are regularly eating these cookies and they are now so used to these cookies that it has become a normal practice for them.
HOW THIS MUD COOKIES ARE MADE..??
The main ingredients in making these cookies are edible clay, salt and vegetable shortening. Edible clay is collected from the nation’s central plateau and is moved to the market in trucks. The women who prepare the cookies, purchase the mud from the market and take it to the towns to make it.
Firstly, the dirt is strained to remove the clumps and rocks. Then, the strained edible clay or dirt is mixed up with salt and vegetable shortening or fat to form flat discs. These discs are left out in the sun to bake. Then, finally the discs, which turn into cookies, are then sold in the market.
These cookies are made in different quantities, as per the affordability of the people. The taste of these cookies are described as a smooth consistency that immediately dries the mouth with a pungent aftertaste of dirt having lingered for hours.
IS EATING EDIBLE CLAY OR SOIL, HEALTHY..??
Truly speaking, mud has no nutritional value. But the people of Haiti have no alternative to overcome the food scarcity and high prices. They are forced to create these cookies and eat them.
Haitians believe that the mud contains calcium but it is strongly disputed by the doctors who warn of tooth decay, constipation and even more worse issues or problems in health. Dirt also contains a lot of potassium which leads to high blood potassium, which increases the risk of cardiac arrest.
Eating dirt can also expose you to bacteria, toxic heavy metals and parasites. Haiti is also facing some mortality issues like respiratory infections, tuberculosis, diarrhoea and eating dirt will worsen the situation.
Even the immune system is getting weak from people eating mud. The water supply in Haiti is often contaminated. Sadly, this contaminated water is making its way in the soil and as well as for the people who are drinking it, which makes the people much more sicker than they already are.
On a serious note, the people of the country need to do all they can to help themselves
