What is Fonio (pronounced PHONE-YO) ?

Fonio is a tiny, nutritious, climate-smart ancient grain that has been prized across West Africa for over 5,000 years. It’s light, fluffy, and just a bit nutty, and it cooks in just five minutes.

See the TED Talk about Fonio by owner and chef, Pierre Thiam - where he shares the cuisine of his home in Senegal through global restaurants and highly praised cookbooks.

Fonio is high in protein, fiber, and iron; gluten-free, and with a low glycemic index. The grain also has a particularly strong amino acid profile, and high levels of methionine and cysteine, which support tissue growth and are deficient in most grains. Fonio is also valued for its easy digestibility and suitability for people suffering from diabetes.
