What we love most about fonio is how drought-tolerant it is, making it less resource intensive than other crops. Our friends at Yolélé make these chips with regeneratively grown fonio that has a deep root system that prevents erosion in the rapidly desertifying Sahel region. This method of conservation farming also makes for better biodiversity in our planet, and our gut-- now if a grain that's good for your body, and even better for the planet isn't sustainable, just what is?!
Yolélé's Afro-Funk flavor is a blend of ginger and dawadawa (a fermented West African seed that you may also know as iru, netetou, or soumbala). It's umami-forward and packs a nice punch.
Your order contains four bags of Fonio Chips, each 5 oz, and ships 3-5 days after you place your order.
