Much love I love it! Keep spreading the love of all you all your Amazing Foods & Products! Love Love Love! I’m ready to purchase more. Thanks Akeem
So tasty! I was worried that I wouldn't like Fonio as I am not big on porridge/hot cereal grains. However, once I cooked this and blended it a bit----it's delicious! I top mine with blueberries, cinnamon, and nut butter---with a spoon of seamoss gel mixed in. I find myself looking forward to breakfast, definitely happy I took a chance on it!
I really enjoy my folio first thing in the morning it gives me a full filling that Doesn’t cause me to bloat it gives me energy throughout the day and it very delicious with fruit and nuts
It taste great!!! Similar to couscous, but much healthier... I just wish the labels were peel and stick, because I keep all Akeem's products in Mason jars... I would definitely recommend this for either lunch and dinner...
Like Akeem stated you can't mess it up. I consume the Fonio throughout the day, it's very fulfilling. I feel like I'm getting all the nutrients my body need. I'm glad I was led to your site, many blessings on you brother.
Fonio is so quick and easy to make, and I really enjoy the taste and more importantly, the benefits!
I'm a southern queen who grew up eating grits. After trying Fornio, I determined that Fornio is indeed my 'new'grits. Thanks for the love!

It’s was great
Delicious and can cook it so many ways!!!!
The Fonio was creamy and full of flavor! My new “Go To” in the morning!
I cook the Fonio everyday. It reminds me of cornmeal and I love eating it my chick pea dishes.
This grain had a distinct smell of when rice or grains are going rancid - old. I don’t feel like it was as fresh as it could have been - almost like a stale grain that has been sitting for a while or not properly stored. I was not overly pleased it to say the least.
I like it!
I have yet to try this since I am currently juicing. Cant wait to try this though. I've heard nothing but great things. Will update soon.
Great quality and taste
I love this and my family have it every morning. I will be purchasing more very soon.
This is the best grain! I love it!
Taste mighty! Now i know why Dr Sebi calls this an Electric food. Thank you for the blessing. Much love.
awesome alternative to the cream of wheat. packed with way more vital nutrients naturally though
This is a very easy grain to cook with an excellent full range of various nutrients for your body to absorb. taste is awesome just use agave to boost the flavor. honey adds a mild flavor so you need a great deal of it.
I love my product. However, was upset that I lost some of my product my package was open when it got it . I was really upset UPS must has pressed very hard and my package was open .
For myself, this has replaced Quinoa. Looking forward to making an açaí fonio bowl!!
I Love my Fonio!
Had a great buying experience and I am enjoying the fonio. Appreciate the fact that it comes pre-washed. I will continue to buy from Akeem.
We love Fonio. Our 3 boys request it for breakfast every morning. It’s soooo filling!
I really love the fonio it’s filling, you can add my thing to it. It’s very easy to make 5 min tops.
I make it for me and my husband it’s a hearty breakfast meal.
Thank you so much for the amazing service. It came to me within days. It’s so easy to make. I already added it into a smoothie.
The Taste was really good I enjoyed it!
Truly amazing experience with akeem fonio...great quality.great product and super fast shipping..its a staple for me and the family.thanks brother. Peace
I love the taste of the fonio, I put elderberry, blueberries and strawberries in it when I prepare it’s the morning. It is so delicious andfeeling
Fast delivery, it has a healty taste, and I felt energized throughout the day.....
Fonio is such a great addition to my kitchen. I use fonio to make jollof, porridge, to mix in salads and so much more. I only purchase from Akeem Pierre because I know that I'm always getting quality products. It was the sea moss that brought me to his Youtube channel and later his website and though I continue to purchase and get glowed up with his sea moss, I now regularly purchase the fonio and soursop tea. You can't go wrong with these products!
Akeem Pierre Thank you so much! The products took a little while to come so you sent me golden seamoss as an apology gift. I was so appreciative and thrilled to receive it! You are the best! I can't say enough about you. May God continue to bless you and your work in providing nothing short of the best products. I don't give reviews but my heart is so overwhelmed!
The BEST DECISION ive made!
I went back & forth on how will i have a healthy breakfast once i cut out all the artificial Foods and meat from my diet. i stop eating cereal years ago & was trying my best to find something quick to throw in my stomach & Boom! Long story short this is my absolute favorite go-to starter once i figured out how to cook it on Youtube lol (dont judge me).. i am so greatful Akeem has videos to his products that also teaches u how to eat it as well
Thank you love it thanks
Delicious and nutritious! Reminds me of grits but more nutritious and quicker cooking.
I had never tasted fonio before but was willing to give it a try and it definitely taste good with dates
Product came in good timing.
I purchased the Fonio and I love it. So far I've made it as a hot porridge, then blend it with Sea Moss, green Protein powder, Prebiotic Powder and Vitamin C powder. It taste great, is satisfying and healthy. Fonio will be added to my morning feast menu. Giving Thanks to Akeem and his health based products.
The service was awesome and the product quality and taste was great. I will order again. Thank you.
Order came in a timely manner and the customer service was excellent. I have not tried the Fonio but I know it will be good since it is a natural grain so I will get great energy from this. I dont eat rice anymore and I feel this will be just fine. Akeem peace blessings and keep doing what you do.
I Ordered 2 Bags Of The Fonio Grain, And It Actually Came Sooner Than I Expected. I Haven't Tried It Yet. I Do Have A Question? On The Package There Is No Clear Window To See The Product, And Also It Doesn't State The Size On The Bags. How Do I Know If I Have The Large Or Small Bags. Although I Purchased The Larger Bags. I Thought They Were Rather Small For The Price. How Can I Found Out, If I Got What I Paid For♀️ First Time Ordering From Here. Thanks
Delicious. Cooks fast! Nutritious! Definitely my new go-to grain. Will be purchasing more. Big bag. Great value.
Fonio has changed my morning routine! It’s so filling & I feel good after eating it!
This was my first experience with fonio, and it was sooo delicious!! It reminded me of cream of wheat. I made it with a hemp seed/dates milk base, added blueberries, baby bananas, strawberries, and agave. I also had a cup of red raspberry leaf tea along with it, which made it a very fulfilling breakfast!! I will definitely be purchasing more of this healthy, nutritious, grain. Thank you, Akeem...Peace & Blessings!!
I love it’s so easy to make. And it’s not heavy on your digestion. So in my experience I have had a large serving amount and I didn’t feel stuffed or sleepy just satisfied. I make mine as a hot cereal with oat milk...also you get big bag of it. I was shocked. I will definitely reorder.
I use this as a replacement for oatmeal, I truly enjoy it and thankful for the product. Thank you Akeem and family for the products and much blessings
I love to brunch it up with fonio. My new go-to grain. Taste great too!
First time trying this delicious, hearty, healthy grain! Thank you for all your excellent products, service and expertise! Blessings!
I just received my Fonio and have only tried it once so far. I have to say that it cooked up just as Akeem said in his video, three parts water to 1 part Fonio cook over medium heat. It was done in a matter of a minutes. I will be enjoying this grain in place of rice.
Much Love to Akeem for supplying the grain!
Love this product. You get more bank for your buck. At a great price. Trying to find different ways to cook with it . Wish they stated that is organic on the package it would help buyers have peace of mind.
I honestly loved this product. Exactly what Akeem says! ...... this fonio can never embarrass the chef, super easy to make. I feel amazing eating this, I feel like I’m treating my body right. Thank you Akeem.
Never seen fonio anywhere before I started watching Akeem’s YouTube channel. Love using it to make stew.
Pleasant surprise. The texture is not what I expected.
AMAZING! I love fonio. I cook mine in coconut milk, add some dates and some sweet spices. Best alkaline fulfilling breakfast. Cooks easy and fast. Akeem is the only supplier that offers bags large enough to sustain you for everyday use.
I really enjoyed my first experience with fonio so did my teenage daughter check out my YouTube channel to the meals she prepared with the fonio its amazing and keeps me full throughout the day
This is my first time trying fonio and I’m loving it. I will definitely order this again.
Love love love this fonio..its a staple for my family's morning..great deliver .great quality..I'm a repeat order..and its alot in there for the price..can't best it actually..trust me. You guys will love your experience...thanks akeem..love from new Orleans brother...
Easy to make. I turn mine into a drinkable meal/snack. Definitely gives me the energy i need (P.S. Dont try to consume at bedtime )
Will purchase it again.
I enjoyed the Fonio. Very easy and quick to cook. It taste wonderful with no things on it. I’m not sure if I was supposed to wash it, so I did not.
I used it to make a veggie loaf and it turned out great. I will try replacing it in a basmati rice recipe and see how it turns out.
Love the taste!
Received my order and my bag was punctured. Loss a bit of fonio in my bag. Said a prayer over it and used it. It’s been amazing! I love making a porridge with it and i flavor it with agave and fruit. Def will re-order when I need to re-up!
Fonio is delicious! I had never had it before and was introduced to it from Akeem's YouTube channel. I got my package very fast despite me ordering it during the quarantine. It is also a good amount that should last me at the very least a month and a half. So far I enjoy it with my salad to make it hearty with a squeeze of lime juice on top!
I love it I use honey in it it taste exactly like cream of wheat I also put fruit in it I eat it everyday for breakfast my energy level is awesome.
Fonio stir fry. Delicious! Full of nutrients. Love this grain!
I love the Fonio. I watched your YouTube video on how to make it and Bam I did it. I made me and my husband some and we fell in love with it. I cooked it with our Amaranth grain and oh yes it turned out just like yours. Thank you so much, I hope you received my pic. I showed my sister who ordered some Sea Moss and she liked what she saw and placed her order as well. We love your products and will always support your brand. Thank you again for all your hard work.
Made my seamoss gel dropped in some berries, with home made walnut milk (100% Vegan)... Delicious and nutrients dents
LOVE IT!!! My son and I couldn’t get enough of the fonio and I also followed the recipe from YouTube. I’ll definitely be purchasing more.
This is so awesome keeps me light but satisfied .
Been using sea moss for 3 1/2 months. I can see my skin getting healthier, my hair growth is thicker and healthier. My nails are stronger. I love it.
I love it! It’s really easy to make and it tastes similar to great. I also noticed that I have energy throughout And I stay satisfied much longer. With me being anemic, I love that this grain is high in iron.
Wickedest grain to work with. Creamy richiddge. Good in smoothies too.
I really like it.
So fluffy and love how it can meet sweet and savory flavor needs!
I have tried all your products
The Irish Moss, Fonio, Bladderrack
I have a lot more energy and over all feeling terrific. Thank you for all you do!!
Love quality & quantity
Mohammed A A.
Very satisfied with the way business is done plan on continuing to do business with them
Just love having fonio for breakfast
But one thing I like to anyone who buy this product is to rinse it more than once before cooking it, and this will allow a very nice smooth texture rid of small little stones.
I truly love this fonio, I put it in my vegan pancakes a great way to incorporate in my 6 year old son's meals. Delicious !!!..
came quick and omg its gooood
Akeem sent out a sample of the fonio with my order of st. Lucia wild crafted Irish sea Moss (btw, he upgraded it from the .5 lb to 1 lb bag with no additional charge)! Anyway, the fonio, like the Irish Sea Moss, was amazing. I made a rich-age(porridge) with chia seeds, blueberries and today I am adding bananas. Much gratitude and appreciation
Love the Fonio grain especially when mixed Teff to make Alkaline Grits. Best two grains in my opinion. Thank you Akeem for making it available on your site.
I received my fonio package and most of it fell out of the bag into the envelope
I have always had issues finding this product and now i don't have to look any further. The Fonio Grain is so super nice and the texture is better than Quinoa. I have made it for both savory as a base for a stew and also as a poritage for beakfast and both times it didn't disappoint. Moving into intense training for triathalons this will be a staple in my diet. Thanks Akeen for your great work in offering Fonio to the world. - Lidia, Victoria, Australia
Akeem’s the first person to turn me onto Fonio. Previous to Dec 2019, I’ve never heard of it.
It’s texture is similar to cream of wheat after boiling/cooking. To me, it’s taste is bland-ish and would take on any flavours you spice it with. My first cook with it, I added plant-based, non-GMO McKays Vegan Chicken Seasoning powder (see photo) to it for flavour and it tasted good :-)
Fonio is a grain grown in West Africa and is a super healthy grain, gluten free and can be used in cooking and baking.
As a superfood, it has more nutritional value than most other grains and it is rich in calcium, magnesium and zinc and vitamin B.
As it’s naturally gluten free, it’ll be welcomed by my wife & daughter, who are G-Free.
Will continue to experiment cooking Fonio with other spices and cooking styles. Thanks Akeem!
From reading https://www.obafoodgroup.com/en/blog/fonio-health-benefits, here’s the Coles notes to the top 10 benefits of Fonio:
1. Naturally gluten-free: doesn’t contain any of the proteins that are found in gluten, so it is perfectly safe to eat if you do have celiac disease.
2. Healthy heart: contains more of the heart friendly vitamins and minerals than other grains do and Fonio will help to the reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
3. Controls diabetes: has a very low glycemic index, so it is absorbed into the body slowly and doesn’t cause spikes in the blood sugar levels. Contains sulphur, chromium and amino acids that help to control diabetes and studies have indicated that eating Fonio might be a way to control blood sugar levels in diabetics.
4. Aids digestion: very easy to digest and, given its such high fibre content, it also passes easily through the body and will ease constipation and improve the digestive process.
5. Aids weight loss: Because of its low glycemic index and its high fibre content, it will fill you up fast and keep you feeling full for some time.
6. Helps to prevent anaemia: has a high concentration of iron, so it helps against anaemia and it also contains folic acid and other amino acids that are beneficial for women during pregnancy.
7. Detox diet: The essential amino acids that Fonio contains, especially cystine and methionine, help to detoxify the liver and the body.
8. Provides energy: provides you with a slow release of energy that will last till your next meal.
9. Strengthens nails & hair: contains an amino acid called methionine, which is known to be important for the body’s production of cartilage and it can also help to strengthen the hair and nails.
10. Strong bones & teeth: good source of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, all of which help to build strong bones and teeth.
Peace a blessing Enjoy this some much the texture is different but I can adjust
Just received the package and did my first breakfast (fonio richage)!! Alright madly in love!!
No way wrong of cooking it it's like a hot cereal stay fuller throughout the day thanks
I like this because it taste and cooks up really fast and looks like a fresh bowl of hot oats or grits. You can add your favorite fruit or preservatives which gives if a flavorful taste or just plain with nothing. I roasted up some vegetables and put over it, taste great.
This is a winner.!!!!!!! Learning more ways to cook with it.
Fonio is my new Fave! This is so much easier and cleaner to cook than Amaranth. Hard to mess up and can go with so many dishes to make sweet or savory. *LOVE*
I've had fonio it's great. The only thing I compare it to is malto meal or cream of wheat. It is easy to fix no clumping at all. It thickens after about 10 min.
