nutrition highlights:


Iron is an essential mineral and component of hemoglobin, the molecule responsible for carrying oxygen within the red blood cells and transporting it to the lungs and rest of the body. Iron is also necessary in maintaining healthy skin, hair, nails and cells.


Fonio Pancake Mix provides a supply of calcium which is best known for strengthening and helping build new bone and teeth. Calcium also plays a role in the nervous system, muscle contractions, hormone regulation, blood clotting and blood vessel function.

Low Glycemic Index

The glycemic index (GI) is a scale that ranks carbohydrate-rich foods by how much they raise the blood sugar levels compared with a standard food such as white bread or sugar. Fonio grain and flour rank low on the GI scale among other grains such as stone-ground whole wheat, pumpernickel, oat bran and barley.
