Tiny African Grain Teff Is Gluten Free And Packs A Nutritional Punch

March 3, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
The search for gluten-free grains has led some people to experiment with teff as a nutritious replacement for wheat, barley and rye. Native to Africa, teff is a tiny grain rich in protein, calcium and vitamin C, most often associated with the Ethiopian bread injera. But works well when making polenta, porridge or even waffles. It can be purchased as a brown or ivory whole grain or flour from companies like Bob’s Red Mill or the Teff Company.
