Teff (eragrostis teff) dried whole grain seeds
The Spiceworks are proud to offer you yet another healthy diet product. Teff is a gluten-free plant.
Here we offer the whole grain- which are tiny, about the same size as Poppy seeds.
We also sell Teff flour, Brown and White.
Teff is the smallest grain in the world, grown primarily in the central highlands of Ethiopia and
used to make the flat bread, 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 flat bread, 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 seed and Amaranth seed whole grain, more great healthy foods that have been used for thousands of years.
