Fonio Grain - Farafena

Grains, Flours & Pastas and other dried goods - Farafena

  • $945

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!
