Fonio with Gatom Foods

Gatom Foods is a superfood company that empowers sub Saharan African smallholder farmers to rid their communities of poverty and malnutrition and to become leading suppliers of healthy foods to world consumers.

Gatom Foods owner Gnakouri Tohouri talks to a Stanford entrepreneurial engineering class about fonio.

Fonio is gluten free nutrient-dense grain packed with protein, essential amino acids, minerals and vitamins.

Quite possibly the fastest growing grain (6-8 weeks), fonio packs the power of quinoa even though it’s half the size.

Later in the class, chef Laura steps up to demo breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes.
