Grown and revered across West Africa for over 5,000 years, Fonio is gluten-free, nutritionally dense, rich in important minerals and amino acids, and has a low glycemic index.

It’s light + fluffy and has a nutty, earthy taste. Fonio goes with just about anything and soaks up spices + sauces beautifully. The grain is tiny when raw but expands over 4x when cooked. It has a light, slightly nutty taste and takes on flavors and seasonings very well. Cook it just like couscous and it’s perfect in salads, grain bowls, tabouleh, hot sides, and more. Fonio also makes a delicious hot cereal, veggie burger, stuffing, and gluten-free baking ingredient.

To the Dogon people of Mali, Fonio is known as “the Seed of the Universe,” …the grain at the root of all existence.
