The Spiceworks are proud to offer you yet another healthy diet product. Teff is a gluten-free plant.
Here we offer the brown Teff flour which is made from the whole grain of the Teff seeds.
Gluten free, this is ideal for those with little or no gluten tolerance.
You can make up a very good bread flour from Teff.
Add a little Xanthan gum for more realistic ‘risen dough’ effects to your bread.
We sell Xanthan Gum, as well as white Teff flour here on our website- why not give them a try also?

Teff is the smallest grain in the world, grown primarily in the central highlands of Ethiopia and used to make the flatbread, injera, that accompanies every Ethiopian meal.
Teff has very much higher levels of calcium (167g/100g) than wheat (34g/100g) so will appeal to those on dairy-free diets. It also has significantly higher levels of a range of other nutrients – iron (5.7mg/100g versus 3.9), magnesium (194mg versus 138), zinc (4.6mg versus 2.9), Vitamin B3/niacin ( 16mg versus 0.8), Vitamin C (70mg versus 0.25) – and low levels of phytic acid making the minerals more bio-available than in any other grains.
Moreover, teff contains the full range of eight amino acids essential for humans, so is excellent for vegetarians. When teff is used to make Ethiopian flatbread, a short fermentation process allows the yeast to generate yet more vitamins.
Teff is naturally gluten-free so is the ideal grain for anyone on a wheat or gluten-free diet.
Add them to your baking, use in salads and add to your breakfast cereal.
Why not include Teff in your favourite breads, biscuits, cakes, stir fry dishes, casseroles, soups, stews, and puddings.
We also sell Quinoa, another great healthy food.
