These are TEFF-rific For You!
This ancient grain Teff, originated from Ethiopia and Eritrea. As small as a seed, this little grain is used as a staple for many cuisines back in the day. Most common methods of usage would be making bread, pancakes, or eating it as a side like rice or quinoa. Naturally high in minerals, many who can't tolerate gluten use teff as an alternative, or ways to increase their whole grains intakes. Currently, teff is being used in many commercialised ways, from making pasta to protein bars and pancake mix. (O'CONNOR, 2016)
