Teff is a gluten-free grain that is technically a seed and native to Ethiopia in eastern Africa where it’s probably best known as the source of the spongy, Ethiopian flatbread called injera.
It’s a tiny mild and nutty grain which can be used for thickening soups or stews and as an alternative to porridge – who knew?
The nutritional values and health properties of Teff are now well recognised around the world, not just as a grain and flour, but also the products that are manufactured from it – and they are all Gluten Free!
Teff is great as an ingredient in pancakes and breads so we’re delighted to have Tobia Teff UK Ltd join us at Gluten Free Ireland to help expand the list of foods available to Coeliacs today.
If you’re not familiar with Teff the Tobia Teff website is bursting with more information about the seed as well as ideas on how to use it in the kitchen.
