About Yolélé

Based in Brooklyn, New York, Yolélé was founded in 2017 to create economic opportunity for smallholder farming communities; to support biodiverse, regenerative, and resilient food systems; and to share Africa’s ingredients and cuisines with the world.

Grown and revered across West Africa for over 5,000 years, fonio is gluten-free, nutritionally dense, rich in important minerals and amino acids, and has a low glycemic index. It's light + fluffy and has a nutty, earthy taste. Fonio goes with just about anything and soaks up spices + sauces beautifully. Cook it just like couscous and it's perfect in salads, grain bowls, tabouleh, hot sides, and more. Fonio also makes a delicious hot cereal, veggie burger, stuffing, and gluten-free baking ingredient.
