HEALTH BENEFITS OF TEFF
High Nutritional Value
Teff grain is high in protein with a great combination of eight essential amino acids needed for the body’s growth and repair. It has high amounts of calcium (1 cup of cooked teff offers about 1/2 cup of calcium found in cooked spinach), manganese, phosphorous, iron, copper, aluminum, barium, thiamin, and vitamin C (which is not normally found in grains). The iron from Teff is easily absorbed, and is also recommended for people with low blood iron levels.
Teff is a gluten-free grain so it can be a great alternative for those living with Celiac Disease, having gluten intolerance or choosing a gluten-free lifestyle.
Manage Blood Sugar
If you’re diabetic, you might want to consider adding Teff to your diet to control blood sugar levels. Teff contains approximately 20 to 40 per cent “resistant starches,” and has a relatively low glycemic index (GI).
The fiber content in this tiny little grain can help regulate your bowel movements, and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
No Sodium & No Fat
Teff is also great for lowering blood pressure and maintaining a heart healthy diet.
Teff is Versatile
Teff is a versatile grain and can be eaten whole, steamed, boiled or baked. Today, Teff is found in a variety of products like pancakes, breads, cereals, snack bars and many other foods.
If properly stored, our Products will stay fresh so that you can enjoy them for many months. We strongly recommend storing in an airtight (dark colored/opaque) container in a cool, dark environment like a pantry or kitchen cabinet, away from direct exposure to sunlight or excessive heat like an oven. The amount of times you open the container and let in the harmful effects of oxygen will only increase the likelihood of rancidity.
