Welcome to NutriLion – your gateway to healthy, sustainable, and flavorful eating.


At NutriLion, we are passionate about sharing the wonders of Egusi seeds with the world. Our journey began with a simple vision: to introduce this remarkable superfood to a wider audience while championing sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint.

We believe that food should not only nourish our bodies but also have a positive impact on the planet.

That’s why we carefully source the finest quality Egusi seeds, containing about 12g of protein per 30g serving, making it a plan-based complete protein. Right now, we are the only company in the world selling USDA Organic certified Egusi, grown without any chemical fertilizers, thereby ensuring they are ethically and sustainably produced. One of the ways that we promote fair practices and support local communities is by partnering with female farmers who share our values.

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond sourcing. We embrace eco-friendly packaging options that are recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable. From our warehouse to your doorstep, we strive to minimize waste and make conscious choices every step of the way.

My name is Gislaine Tsemo, the founder of NutriLion Seeds. Let me introduce you to our company and how it came to be.

Our startup is deeply committed to enhancing the livelihood of African women through ethical farming while making the nutritional powerhouse, Egusi, well known to the U.S.

When traditional medicine offered no clear answers for my son’s illnesses, we turned to integrative approaches, prioritizing nutrient-rich foods. This shift not only improved his health but also enriched our family’s diet with flavors from the continents we’ve called home: America, Europe, and West Africa.

Egusi, a West African staple, became a focus due to its nutty flavor and significant health benefits. Rich in plant-based protein, essential amino acids, unsaturated fats, fiber, and low in sugar, Egusi is an adaptable addition to any meal—be it breakfast cereals, savory sauces, or as a peanut butter alternative for those with allergies.

Our mission extends beyond Egusi’s culinary versatility. We stand for organic, fair trade practices, striving to make Egusi a staple in eco-conscious households. Join us in this endeavor, engage with our community, and help spread the word about this superfood.
