Product Description


    Just like quinoa, teff is a gluten-free grain. Traditionally ground into flour and fermented to make spongy sourdough bread called injera – a national flatbread of Ethiopia and Eritrea where the grain is cultivated. It comes in two different types the size of a poppy seed, ivory and brown. Brown teff has a subtle earthy and nutty (almost hazelnut) flavour and moist texture similar to millet. Ivory teff has a slightly milder flavour WHERE CAN I GET IT? Once upon a time teff was only readily available in African specialty food shops, but now you can find it in most health food stores or even in your local supermarket. Eating ancient has never been so easy. WHY EAT IT? Out of all the gluten free grains, teff punches far above its weight in impressive nutritional benefits. It’s higher in protein than wheat, high in iron, calcium and contains all eight essential amino acids. It also has more calcium, fibre, zinc and thiamine than it’s Andean counterpart, quinoa. Teff does have a higher carbohydrate content however that’s mainly made up of resistant starch – a highly underrated dietary fibre that’s excellent for blood sugar balance and gut health. It basically feeds your friendly gut bacteria, which in turn increases the production of short-chain fatty acids like butyrate – which improves the function of your digestive system.
