Teff is the seed of a fine stemmed, tufted annual grass. The significant characteristic of Teff is its tiny size; it is the smallest grain in the world, measuring only about 1/32 of an inch! The word Teff is thought to have been derived from the Amharic word Teffa, which means “lost,” because the seed is so tiny and easy to lose.  This tiny grain, also known as love grass and annual bunch grass, is an expensive grain to harvest. Because the grains of Teff are so small, the majority of the grain consists of the bran and germ which is the most nutritious parts of any grain.

Teff has a very high calcium content and is high in protein, carbohydrates, fiber and iron. With a molasses-like sweetness and nutty melt-in-your-mouth flavor, Teff is similar in taste to hazelnuts. Teff should be dry roasted, soaked or sautéed prior to use. Teff contains no gluten so it is appropriate for those with gluten intolerance. Use to replace sesame seeds in recipes. Cooked teff can be added to muffins, breads or pancakes.
