 100% Gluten Free This Ancient West African (Sub Saharan) Super Grain is Called Fonio.  Econfriendly, NonGMO and Comes Directly To Your Door from The Motherland!  This Ancient Grain Is Naturally Gluten-Free And Packed With Protein Fiber And Iron.  Fonio Also Has A Low Glycemic Index Making It A Great Option For Diabetics.  It Is Also High In Essential Amino Acids Methionine And Cysteine That Are Deficient In Most Other Cereal Grains.

FONIO - this is a VERY NUTRITIOUS West African Grain and is cultivated ONLY in Senegal and Mali. It has more vitamins & minerals than Quinoa (from South America) and is on the Dr Sebi list. In fact it is the OLDEST CONTINUOUSLY grown cereal in THE WORLD and has not been able to be duplicated (yet) so there's no GMOs that I know of - you can ONLY get AUTHENTIC AFRICAN FONIO FROM WEST AFRICA and for the purposes of our distributors, I hope it stays that way!

It's very popular here locally (in Senegal) and in the region, selling out CONSTANTLY at the grocery stores! I have co-op ladies as production partners so I'm always able to get Fonio no matter the season but big suppliers, like Yolele foods (Senegalese Chef Peter Thiam in NY who has the TED TALK - see other Fonio listing!) - they have CONTAINERS FULL of Fonio sitting in fulfillment warehouses at Amazon so God knows how old it is.  

This is our WeBuyBlack listing for 1lb of Fonio:


Ours is FRESH and newly cultivated, cleaned and packaged and ready to eat because it's the SAME FONIO that the locals eat.

You don't have to wonder about how old it is!

Valued for it's MEDICIAL VALUE for diabetics as well as preventative properties for people with sensitive stomach, IBS for example Fonio is a very popular food. They also feed it to babies/children to make them healthy and strong - it's better than baby food... I'm telling you this stuff really is a MIRACLE GRAIN.

It's also gluten free, vegan of course and PERFECT for the vegetarian diets for it's 'stick to your bones' effect.

You don't need to use a lot when cooking as it expands about 5x it's size! I add A LOT of seasoning to the water (I do the same for rice!) so when it's done, you can eat it out of the pan alone if you wish!  Personally, I add 2 cubes of Jumbo seasoning spice with some Negro Pepper and African Sea Salt in the water and to give it some kick!  

If you're wondering about W African Spices as well, here's a link to those, there's about 50+ nonGMO spices in our Shoppe!

This is the AfricanHerbal SpiceGurl individual $5 sample packages:


(HINT:  Just put 'Ethnic Grocery' in the WeBuyBlack search engine to see MORE of our herbs, spices and food related listings!)

To Continue:  I also mix Fonio with rice to make the meal more filling and add Moringa powder as well. I add Moringa powder to EVERYTHING including the meat for hamburgers I made last night! lol!

Also you know how, if you eat rice you're hungry about an hour later?! Fonio fills that space and you're FULL, there's no need to snack after eating Fonio!

DISTRIBUTORS/RESELLERS:  Take a good look at the packaging and labels...  YOU don't have to buy anything else but business cards for your personal contact information.  This is truly ready to ship out after delivery!

EVERYONE ELSE:  AfricanHerbal FONIO is the ONE THING that other people don't have.  This is literally a 'Small Business in a Box' and ready to SELL as soon as you get it!
