Delve into the world of Teff Seeds, originating from the ancient grains of the Eragrostis tef plant, a staple in Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisines. Revered for its tiny size yet substantial nutritional value, Teff is a powerhouse grain that has been a part of traditional diets in the Horn of Africa for thousands of years.

Teff Seeds are impressively versatile, boasting a slightly nutty, earthy flavor. They come in a variety of colors, ranging from white to red to dark brown, each offering a slightly different taste profile. These seeds are traditionally used to make injera, a sourdough-risen flatbread with a unique, slightly spongy texture. Beyond injera, Teff Seeds are utilized in an array of dishes, including stews, porridges, and baked goods, offering a wholesome and gluten-free alternative to more common grains.

In addition to their culinary versatility, Teff Seeds are celebrated for their dense nutritional content. They are an excellent source of protein, fiber, and minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium. Teff's high fiber content is particularly beneficial for digestive health, and its low glycemic index makes it a favorable choice for maintaining balanced blood sugar levels.

Our Teff Seeds invite you to explore the rich flavors and health benefits of this ancient grain. Whether used in traditional Ethiopian cooking, as a nutritious addition to your meals, or as a gluten-free alternative, Teff Seeds bring a touch of exotic tradition to your dining table.
