Fonio is a preeminent African superfood that is harvested in the savannas of West Africa. This millet grain is little-known outside of Africa but, like quinoa, the grains are used in porridge and as couscous but is known to be much healthier choice. fonio is one of the most nutritious of all grains. It’s so full of protein that it even has amino acids that other grains don’t, making it a much more complete protein source. fonio is also known to be rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and manganese. It’s also very high in fiber and has a low glycemic index. Traditionally in Africa, many people that suffer from diabetes eat fonio instead of rice as a healthier substitute.

Juka’s Organic is committed to bringing the best fonio to your kitchen tables. We have partnered with women in villages of West Africa to import their hand selected and ethically harvested fonio. Our fonio grains are de-husked, thoroughly hand washed and naturally dried to preserve the most authentic & premium quality fonio.

 Juka Ceesay CEO Of Juka's Organic Co.

Juka's Organic Co., was established in 2013 by Juka Ceesay. After owning an African food market in 2008 in the City of Los Angeles for several years. Juka realized there was a lack of authentic, pure and natural products in the united states from Africa. Her objective is to combine a variety of innovative items (Organic Red Palm Oil, Shea butter, Herbal Medicines, African Tea, African Whole Grain and lots more) from the historic past of Africa to tailor them to fit today's contemporary life while still maintaining the authenticity of these products. 

Juka's has partnered up with women from small villages of West Africa to exclusively supply their hand selected, unrefined sustainable organic red palm oil.  All the women that work with Juka's use the traditional method of natural palm oil extraction, this is the same method that has been used throughout small West African villages for centuries. The best palm oil is the sustainable type that comes from the continent of origin, West Africa. Palm trees are part of villages in Africa for centuries, each generation of women sustainably produce their palm fruit oil as their main source of income and proudly pass it on to the next.

"It is to our benefit as Africans to stand against deforestation because wildlife and Rainforest is what makes Africa unique and special."  Juka Ceesay
