Fonio - 5#

Yolele - Fonio is a gluten-free ancient African supergrain that’s great for you, others, and the planet. Fonio (Digitaria exilis) is a tiny ancient grain that has been grown and celebrated across West Africa for thousands of years. Fonio has been found entombed in Egyptian pyramids. To the Dogon people of Mali, it is “the seed of the universe” – the grain at the root of all existence. In most of West Africa, fonio is served to guests as a sign of honor. Fonio has different culinary roles depending on where you are in West Africa. I grew up in Senegal, where in the southern region we eat fonio like we eat rice or couscous. Malians most often pair it with peanuts to make a traditional staple called Djouka. People in Guinea, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Benin and Togo make starchy fonio side dishes in the form of polenta or cakes. No matter how you cook it, fonio offers distinct nutritional benefits over other grains. Fonio is prized everywhere for its easy digestibility and low glycemic index. It’s often served to honored guests and to convalescents, diabetics, and of course people suffering from celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Fonio is strong in Methionine and Cystine, two amino acids that are essential for growth. UPC: 687080760378 More details...
