Fonio, the new star of organic cereals grown in West Africa - JeuneAfrique.com

Cereal grown in West Africa, fonio is now prized worldwide by the followers of the food well-being and without gluten.

Has fonio become the new quinoa? Undoubtedly, this West African food, rich in nutrients (magnesium, zinc, calcium), is more and more emulated in the United States as in Europe.

If this gluten-free cereal, which can be eaten cold or hot, is available in all the so-called "exotic" products shops, especially in Paris, there are countless organic food retailers who favor fair trade. You can even buy fonio (10 euros on average per kilo) on e-commerce sites like Bienmanger, Smartfooding, Greenweez or Etsy.
