Teff Grain - 200g
Teff (Eragrostis tef) is an Ethiopian annual crop cultivated mainly for its small grain and used locally in the preparation of a pancake-like staple food called injera.
The genus Eragrostis consists of about 350 varieties. But teff is the only cultivated species. The crop is stress-tolerant and was domesticated about 3,000 years ago. Recently, there has been a growing interest and the grain is gaining global popularity for its outstanding nutritional properties.
It provides relatively higher protein content than most grains, with a complete set of essential amino acids. Teff is also high in iron and other minerals such as calcium, copper, and zinc if compared to other cereal grains consumed as whole-grain flour, such as wheat, maize, barley, and sorghum. It has also been proven to be a significant source of bioactive compounds, including polyphenols, and is especially rich in flavonoid derivatives, which are rare in the more common grains.
