More consumers are health conscious and are taking maters in their own hands to research about foods that are great for them. 2. African foods are being welcomed and embraced by mainstream and we love that.Fonio is an African superfood that is one of the most nutritious of all grains. It’s so full of protein & even has amino acids that other grains don’t, making it a much more complete protein source.
