This highly nutritious whole grain flower is made from the smallest grain the world. The seed of Williams lovegrass in Ethiopia is truly a nutritional powerhouse. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, protein and iron. And not only that, but teff is also high in resistant starch, a newly-discovered type of dietary fiber that can benefit blood sugar management, weight control, and colon health. It’s estimated that 20-40% of the carbohydrates in teff are resistant starches. A gluten-free grain with a mild flavor, teff is a healthy and versatile ingredient for many gluten-free products.
No wonder more and more people are choosing to enjoy this light, unique flavor and bountiful nutrition. And now you can too. Here's a simple, yet easy and delicious way to enjoy the benefits and flavor of teff.
