Fonio, one of the many types of grains and pseudocereals belonging to a group of scarce crops conventionally termed as lost grains. This particular crop, Fonio, has origins in West Africa, typically Ghana.

It is cultivated for its superior nutritional profile and lack of gluten, making it not only an attractive ingredient for baking, especially for bread and snacks but also a perfect regimen for diabetics.

Cakes, cookies, and other pastries have also been reported to have been successfully made with Fonio with the uniqueness of taste and convincing bite. For example, cookies were made with Fonio, sorghum, and pearl millet flour. It can also be incorporated into breakfast cereals, pasta, pancakes, and crackers.
