Teff Flour comes from a gluten free ancient grain that originated in North Africa. Substitute teff flour for about 25% of the white flour called for in baked goods recipes for increased nutrition and distinctive flavour. Teff is a good source of iron and an excellent source of fibre.
Teff Flour is a pleasingly light, uniquely flavoured, 100% whole grain flour. Ethiopian households have been using teff flour in their baking for ages. A favourite teff dish eaten at almost every Ethiopian meal is a flat, crepe-like bread called Injera.
Whole Grain Teff, an ancient East African cereal grass, is a nutritional powerhouse. It is the smallest grain in the world—about 100 grains of teff are the size of a single kernel of wheat!
Compared to other grains, it has a much larger percentage of bran and germ so it's a very good source of dietary fibre, protein, iron, amino acids, vitamin C and calcium. Another teff flour benefit is the calcium content that significantly surpasses that of all other grains.
