Teff a new superfood
Teff, a gluten-free power grain is considered the smallest grain in the world. One teff plant produces about 10,000 grains, which are as tiny as poppy seeds. It takes 150 teff grains to outweigh a single grain of wheat. Teff originates from Ethiopia, where it has been cultivated for around 6,000 years, making it one of the oldest cultivated types of grain.
Meanwhile, teff is now also grown in Europe and is increasingly becoming a superfood. Teff is gluten-free, but the teff flour still has very good baking properties. And since there is no peeled teff, teff is basically wholesome and therefore rich in vital substances. The mini-grain provides interesting amounts of calcium, magnesium and iron in particular. Teff is also one of the most protein-rich cereals. At the same time, teff tastes very delicious and can be turned into all kinds of delicacies. Teff pops (puffed teff grains) are also suitable for preparing muesli when mixed directly with milk or yoghurt. Teff pops can also be mixed into bread or cake dough.
