Fonio
is a gluten-free, nutrient-dense, low GI ancient grain that can be cooked in
just 3 minutes. It is a delicious alternative to rice, quinoa, couscous or
polenta. Try fonio in stir-fries, stews, soups, vegan burgers, stuffed
peppers, casseroles, salads, tabbouleh, buddah bowls or as a side dish. It
can be used to replace any grain in any dish and also makes a delicious,
creamy porridge.
Fonio provides life-changing income to women farmers in the African Sahel
and restores degraded soils. Fonio has been grown in West Africa for 5,000
years and is thought to be one of Africa's oldest cereals. It is mostly
cultivated in West Africa in the arid Sahel region.
The smallest in the millet family, fonio grains are just 1mm big, similar
to a grain of sand. Fonio is also known as 'Digitaria Exilis', 'acha' or 'hungry rice' (although this is often misunderstood in English, it is not
because people are hungry that it has this name, it is because it is so
delicious, it makes you hungry!) Due to its small size, it is relatively
difficult to process which is why it has been unavailable outside of Africa, until now!Country of OriginMaliOrganicSuitable for vegetarians Nutrition Value: Typical Values per 100g per portion serving
