How do I cook Teff? It’s really down to personal preference. For a lighter more rice like consistency try 2 cups water to 1 cup Teff, bring to the boil then reduce to simmer and cover until all water has been absorbed (approx. 6 mins), remove from the heat and leave to stand for another 10 mins with the lid on. Fluff with a fork then serve. For a porridge/risotto consistency aim for 3 cups water to 1 cup Teff on a simmer for 10-12 minutes. Teff can also be pan roasted and added to your favourite salad or shake for added crunch and flavour.

Why should I be eating Teff? Because it’s yum! It’s also high in protein & calcium, high in resistant starch, packed with Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese and it’s gluten free. What’s not to love?

Why should I buy from the Teff Tribe?  Teff Tribe was established from the very start as a socially responsible enterprise. Looking around we could see a huge number of people that were struggling with healthy eating, we also happen to live in Australia and enjoy an amazing standard of living when compared to many other countries.

We thought it would be great to combine our passion for healthy eating with giving back to people less fortunate than us. So we teamed up with Ethiopia Aid to give 2% of all our sales back to people in need (that’s 27c of every pack).  Every spoonful you eat is helping improve the lives of others. We call it easy charity, the more you eat the more you help!

Where does your Teff come from? South Africa.

What’s the difference between Ivory and Brown Teff? Brown Teff has a rich and robust nutty flavour.  Ivory Teff is more mild, with a chestnut like flavour.  It’s too hard to pick a favourite!

What is that fine grass like matter in the grains? Teff is a very small grain and has a 99% purity by weight in the specification. This means that the 1% can contain other extraneous vegetable matter with this grain. During the harvesting and cleaning of this grain the soft husk – grass like particles can stay with the product. This husk is soft and is an intrinsic part of this product. Based on this information the grass like husk is part of this Teff product.
