Our Fonio flour is made from 100% finely ground Fonio grain. It is a gluten free, fiber rich replacement for white flour, and is ideal for baking, pancakes, African ‘swallow’ meal and for thickening sauces.

Fonio, also known as ‘Acha’ in Nigeria, is a high fiber, easily digestible gluten free grain grown in West Africa. It is  packed with nutrients and essential amino acids, rich in Protein and Iron, and a good source of Magnesium, Phosphorus and Dietary Fiber. 

The Iron in Fonio reduces tiredness and fatigue, while the Protein and Fiber promotes the feeling of fullness. 

Fonio has a rich, slight nutty flavor and a texture much smaller than quinoa and couscous. It has a low glycemic index which makes it a perfect food for diabetics. 

Our Raw Fonio is locally grown by smallholder farmers in Northern Nigeria, that practice sustainable and eco-friendly methods. 

It is 100% natural, additive and preservative free.
