Amazing! This Grain is Being Called the New Quinoa!

Fonio is a West African grain that holds a special place in Senegalese culture. It’s a staple in breakfast, lunch, and dinner and plays a key role in local customs and traditions. The fact that it is also gluten-free is inspiring many to call this hardy, tough grain “the new quinoa.”

Fonio is also drought-resistant, can grow in poor soil, and requires no pesticides as part of its cultivation, making it an excellent crop as climate becomes warmer and more unpredictable.

This video from National Geographic is a perfect introduction to this incredible grain.
