Teff flour is the ground seeds of Ethiopian lovegrass. It is the main ingredient in the fermented bread injera, a staple food in Ethiopia. Teff export is tightly controlled by the Ethiopian government to protect supply for local consumers. Our flour comes from Europe-grown crops.
Teff is a good source of calcium and protein. Naturally gluten-free, it is a good addition to cakes, muffins, breads, pancakes and scones.
