The Gluten-Free Grain You Shouldn’t Miss Out On
One of the tiniest seed grains, teff is gluten-free and full of vital nutrients and minerals. An ancient grain from Ethiopia, teff comes in both ivory and dark and has been around for centuries—however, it’s only lately that it has come back into fashion in the North American diet, due to the rise in Celiac disease and gluten intolerance, and the quest for tasty, healthy, gluten-free grains.
If you have ever eaten at an Ethiopian restaurant, you may have tried it in a type of bread they call enjera.
The Health Benefits of Teff
Teff is a good source of iron, calcium, protein, fiber, and B vitamins. As it is gluten-free, celiacs can rest easy with teff. It’s also a great food source for diabetics as it helps control blood sugar levels.
