An affine monoid is a finitely generated commutative submonoid of $\mathbb Z^k$ for some positive integer k. Let S be an affine monoid and let G(S) be the group generated by S. We say the monoid S is normal if and only if for all $g \in G(S)$ and $n \in \mathbb N \setminus {0}$, $ng \in S$ implies $g \in S$.
