The Dogon people of Mali believe that the universe was created from a single grain of Fonio, while in ancient Egypt the grain was considered so healthy it was taken to the afterlife.

Prized for its flavour, this gluten-free superfood is a source of iron, and zinc. With zero added sugars, our Fonio is easily digestible and highly tolerated by diabetics. A nutritious alternative to rice, quinoa, millet or couscous, it takes on the flavor of whatever it is cooked with. So whip up delicious butter grits, porridge, tabbouleh, buddha bowls, casseroles, salads, breakfast cereals and more ….and feel good about it!

  • No additives or preservatives, just 100% pure Fonio grain
  • Not pre-cooked
  • Pre-Washed (We water wash vs. air separated like some other brands. So it is dust free too!)
  • Produced with care by independent women farmers in Africa to ensure only the finest quality and freshness.
