Ounce for ounce, Teff, the smallest grain in the world, supplies more fiber rich bran and nutritious germ than any other grain! It also packs a high mineral content that boasts 17 times the calcium of whole wheat or barley. It takes 150 grains of teff to weigh as much as one grain of wheat which accounts for its high nutritional value. In any grain the nutrients are concentrated in the germ and bran. With teff the germ and bran make up the bulk of the grain and because it is too small to hull, its nutrients are abundant and stay intact.
There are three varieties of Teff - white, brown and red. Each has an almost nutty flavor. The white teff is chestnut-like in taste; the darker colors are more earthy and taste like hazelnuts. Brown teff makes a rich breakfast porridge enjoyed by many.
