Known as the ”seed of the universe’, Farafena’s Fonio Grain is a gluten-free grain that is an ancient member of the millet family – a grain that has been cultivated sustainably in Africa for over 5000 years
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!)
