Description

Gluten Free Organic Brown Teff Flour is ground down from an ancient grain.

Gluten Free Organic Brown Teff Flour is a great addition to any gluten free store cupboard.  If you enjoy experimenting with your baking then this is a great one to try.

Is organic teff grain new to you?  These small reddish brown seeds look similar to alfalfa seed but can be cooked into a consistency similar to cous cous.  Our organic Teff Flour is certified gluten free and has a mild nutty flavour.  It is rich in a range of vitamins and minerals.

Teff was one of the earliest foods domesticated by the Ethiopian people between 8000 and 5000 BC so is considered an ancient grain.  It was coveted by ancient Ethiopians.  This is probably because it is a rich source of nutrition and one 90g serving is a source of Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Copper and Manganese.

Gluten rich options such as regular white flour or spelt flour don’t suit everyone and this is where Teff comes in!  Teff flour is a great option and it can be used in a whole host of recipes.  It combines well with other gluten free flours for a wide range of baking recipes.

Ingredients: Organic Brown Teff Grain

Origin: Spain
