Gluten free fonio
A new rising star among the grains together with Teff. We source our Fonio from our own project in Burkina Faso, where we clean, process and train the farmers to increase their yields. It is the perfect ingredient for celiacs and a fierce rival of quinoa.
Fonio is the term for two cultivated grasses in the genus Digitaria that are notable crops in parts of West Africa. They are millets with small grains. Fonio is a nutritious food with a favorable taste. It is consumed mainly in West African countries, where it is also cultivated. The global fonio market was 673,000 tonnes in 2016. The name fonio (borrowed by English from French) is from Wolof foño.
