Teff is a high-fiber food and a strong source of protein, manganese, iron and calcium. The array of vitamins and minerals found in teff contribute to its role as a healthy, weight-managing and bone-strengthening food
Teff is the smallest grain in the world. Originating in Africa thousands of years ago, it has long been an important food for Highland Ethiopians, who use it to make everything from bread to beer, Now the rest of the world is catching on to the bug potential of this tiny grain. With a mild, nutty flavor and lots of calcium, protein, iron and fiber, whole grain teff is a great addition to porridge, stew, pilaf or baked goods.
