Teff, Ivory, Whole
Our Organic Ivory Teff is grown in Spain. Teff is a tiny whole grain that naturally does not contain gluten, and is packed with nutrients. It has been grown as a staple food in Ethiopia for thousands of years.
A nutritional powerhouse, Teff is low in fat, high in fiber, and full of protein, calcium, copper and iron. Teff also has high levels of phosphorous, thiamine, and all of the essential amino acids in easily absorbed forms.
According to Ayurveda, teff is a “sattva” food, meaning it calms and focuses the mind, and “tridosha,” meaning it is good for all body types.
Teff grain makes an excellent hot cereal (no need for soaking) or delicious dish combined with veggies. It can also be added to bread or cookie recipes.
Store teff in a cool, dark, dry place in tightly covered containers. Keeps best refrigerated or frozen.
We have discontinued this imported Teff. Please try Item #G173 Oregon Grown Conventional Teff.
We have worked with farms for many years in the Willamette Valley to trial Organic teff, and have found it to be too wet a climate to grow Organically well. The challenge is that will all the moisture, weeds tend to out-compete the crop. We hope to trial some Organic teff in coming years with growers in drier Eastern Oregon. Stay tuned!
