Benefits of Fonio (Organic)


This is fast becoming one of the most popular super-foods – it has levels of nutrients that are practically unheard of!

One of the oldest African cereal grains, having been consumed in West African countries like Nigeria, Guinea, and Burkina Faso for over 5,000 years.

It is absolutely packed with nutrients. It is a great source of plant-based protein, and it’s naturally gluten-free which is important today as more and more people have become aware of the dangers associated with gluten. It’s also high in important metals like iron, zinc, phosphorus, and magnesium. These are necessary for cognitive function, bone health, general energy, and many other functions.

It is packed with essential amino acids which are vital in so many functions in the body. It is particularly high ins methionine, cystine, valine, leucine, and isoleucine, fonio. Vegans can sometimes struggle to get these in adequate amounts, so Fonio could be a great supplement to their diets.

It is also high in B vitamins, such as thiamine, riboflavin, folate, and niacin. These are essential as the body uses them to convert nutrients into energy. B vitamins are also needed for healthy muscles, nerves, heart, and cognitive function.

It has a low GI score, so it is a great choice for people who want to keep their blood sugar levels under control. For this reason, it has been recommended as a diabetes management tool in African countries.
