Fonio Grain Mockup C Front

Fonio Grain

$14.99

Fonio, also called “Acha” in Nigeria is one of the oldest cultivated grains in West Africa. It is a naturally gluten free grain, which has a rich, mild nutty flavour and a texture similar to teff or millet.

Fonio cooks in 5 minutes and is ideal as a gluten free breakfast cereal.

It is a nutritious choice for individuals looking for alternatives to traditional gluten-based grains as it has a high iron and protein content when compared to other grains, and it promotes the feeling of fullness

Fonio is excellent for families because it expands over 3x its size, so a little goes a long way.

It is 100% natural, and free of artificial colours, flavours, and preservatives.
