    Default What Is Teff And How Do You Use It?



    Whether you’re living the gluten free life or just want to experiment with cool new ingredients, teff should be high on your list.
    Sometimes written as tef or t’ef, this grain (actually a pseudo-grain, since it’s technically a seed) is the smallest whole grain in the world. Teff has a beautiful dark brown color, a great earthy flavor similar to amaranth or quinoa, and can be used in many of the same ways in the kitchen.
    Teff is known as an ancient grain, one that has survived through the centuries without much hybridization or processing.

    "Teff is also high in what’s known as “resistant starch.” As the Whole Grain Council explains, resistant starch is, “a newly-discovered type of dietary fiber that can benefit blood-sugar management, weight control, and colon health. It’s estimated that 20-40% of the carbohydrates in teff are resistant starches.”

    This is great news! I have a teff recipe that I'll publish in just a minute!
