The study on the grains size of different qualities of Attieke sold on the market in Abidjan city clearly indicates that the Normal Attieke produced in Abidjan was of small grain sizes. One gram of sample of this category of grain contained between 180 and 200 grains. A majority of these grains were distributed in sieve sizes with diameter range between 3.15 to 0.5 mm. These grains were divided into several categories according to their diameter. Agbodjama is characterized by a multitude of mainly homogenous grains of which the total number in one gram was between 300 and 320. Their size varied generally between 2 and 0.8 mm. The majority of grains from Garba were ranged between 3.15 to 0.315 mm and one gram of Garba contained between 210 and 230 grains. These results constitute an important database for international specifications establishment
