Teff Flour (made from the teeny tiny teff grain; the smallest grain in the world) is a gluten free flour that is high in protein and fibre and contains more calcium than any other grain. It contains essential amino acids such as lysine. It is also the only grain to contain Vitamin C.
Teff Flour is traditionally used in Ethiopia to make "injera"; a flat sour-like fermented pancake that is served with stew and/ or lentils.
It can also be used to make cookies (goes fabulously with chocolate... recipe below), breads and cakes.
Teff has an earthy, nutty flavour.
We are a stockist of Outback Harvest teff products. Made from teff that is grown and packed in Australia.
