Teff is a sweet tasting, naturally gluten free grain unlike any other. Ivory Teff has a milder flavor than the Brown Teff. Tinier than a poppy seed, teff is a nutritional powerhouse. An 8 oz. serving of teff yields 32% of the USDA for calcium and 80% for iron. While not a complete protein like quinoa, a 2 oz. serving of teff has 7 grams of protein, equal to an extra large egg. Teff is low in fat(1 gram per 2oz serving) and high in fiber (8 grams per 2 oz serving). In all grains, nutrients concentrate in the germ and the bran, and with the teff grain, the germ and the bran make up almost the whole grain. Since teff is too small to hull, it can\'t be refined or lose nutritional value.
Teff grain has the versatility of corn meal and millet. It is delicious in porridge, stews, stuffing, and pilaf. Teff is delicious cooked alone or in combination with other grains(brown rice, millet, buckwheat groats) and vegetables. Simple cook 1 cup teff with 3 cups water or stock. Season with your favorite spices. Teff is ideal for a fast meal, ready in 20 minutes.
