It is estimated that 20-40% of the carbohydrates in Teff are resistant starches. Teff is a healthy and versatile ingredient for many gluten-free products. ** Teff is an excellent source of calcium, with a cup of cooked Teff offering 123 mg, about the same amount of calcium as in a half-cup of cooked spinach.It has been estimated that Ethiopians get around two-thirds of their protein intake from Teff. COOKING TEFFIn Ethiopia, Teff is commonly ground into flour and fermented to make the spongy, sourdough bread known as injera. For those who enjoy Ethiopian cuisine, injera is used to make an edible serving plate. How cool is that!A large round of injera is placed in the middle of the table, then various foods are served directly on top. Small bits of injera are torn off and the food is rolled inside. Ethiopians also use teff to make porridgeIn addition to its traditional uses Teff can also be used as an ingredient in pancakes, snacks, breads, cereals and many other products, it is particularly useful in gluten-free recipes.White or ivory teff has a mild flavor, darker varities have an earthier taste. Injera has a sour taste, being fermented sour dough however when not formented, teff has a sweet and light flavor. How you cook Teff depends on how you like to eat it:1. “Dry Cooking” Cook 1 cup of Teff in 1 cup of water for 6-7 minutes, while covered allow it to stand for a five to 10 minutes. This results in a light crunchy texture, similar to that of poppy seeds.Sprinkle on vegetables or salads or add to soups.2. For a creamy texture simply Cook 1 cup of Teff in 3 cups of water for 20 minutes. "For added flavour try adding some Nutritional or Savory Yeast Flakes which contribute the added bonus of B Vitamins including B12 as well as further protein and minerals. This combination is even more effective for blood sugar balance due to the chromium content combined with the "resistant starch" found in Teff" - Benjamin Deutscher N.D. - Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbalist Please phone to arrange a suitable time for pick upsPick up locations: Wellness United1-6 Fortitude Cres, Burleigh Heads 4220 Malvern Natural Health Care265a Waverley Rd, Malvern East Vic 314503 9572 3211 "Natural and Organic Foods, Remedies and Home Appliances"1300 898 563 After sales support is also very important: You are buying this product from a 100% Australian owned business supported by a team of health professionals including a leading Naturopath with over 20 years experience MPN: Does Not Apply, Brand: Wellness United
