Fonio is a whole grain and one of African’s ancient grains popularly known as “Acha” in West Africa or “Hungry Rice” in most of Europe. Although it is sometimes referred to as “minor or lost crops”, Fonio has gained a lot of popularity around the world in recent times particularly because of its exhaustive health benefits and its ability to diversify diets. It is a nutritional powerhouse with significantly more fiber, protein and iron. It is also a great source of plant-based amino acids, and it is naturally gluten-free.
