Organic Fonio 10 oz
Fonio has long been used as friendly food because it is low in glycemic index. It is slowly absorbed in the body and therefore its effect on blood sugar is very gradual. Fonio will quickly become one of your favorite grains as its flavor is delectable and its nutrient benefits are impressive. Fonio is a rare, ancient grain, originating from small pockets throughout Africa.
Fonio is one of the preeminent African superfoods and holds an honored place in West African, and particularly Sahel, culture. Nutritionally, it rivals the Ethiopian artisanal grain tef in how good it is for you, but before we get into that, it is our pleasure to introduce fonio to you.
Fonio is also rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and manganese, and has more of these nutrients, serving-per-serving, than other grains. It’s also very high in fiber, which makes it a good carbohydrate as it releases its sugar slowly into the blood stream, making for consistent, high-quality energy over a longer period of time.
