Teff Flour is a pleasingly light, uniquely flavored, 100% whole grain flour. Ethiopian households have been using teff flour in their baking for ages. A favorite teff dish eaten at almost every Ethiopian meal is a flat, crepe-like bread called Injera.
Whole Grain Teff, an ancient East African cereal grass, is a nutritional powerhouse. It is the smallest grain in the world—about 100 grains of teff are the size of a single kernel of wheat! Compared to other grains, it has a much larger percentage of bran and germ so it's a very good source of dietary fiber, protein, iron, amino acids, vitamin C and calcium. The calcium content in teff significantly surpasses that of all other grains.
Due to the small size of the grain, it is almost impossible to grind teff flour in your home mill. We are glad to do the work for you! Now you, too, can enjoy the light, nutty flavor and bountiful nutrition of teff flour in your home. Substitute Teff Flour for about a fourth of the all-purpose flour called for in your favorite baked goods recipe to add an appealing taste and added nutrition. Naturally gluten free, teff is a wonderful way to add something a bit exotic to your diet.

- Great enjerra
Visited Ethiopia about 5 years ago and finally got around to making enjerra. Thanks to your teff flour they turned out almost authentic. I made a 24hr recipe and saved some starter and will wait 48hrs next time to get that sour flavor I remember. So good...
- Perfect for roll making
- I mixed the teff 50/50 with almond flour and made the best rolls.
- Finally found The Teff as I know it
- Thank you for this clean and fresh teff flour. I am on a quest to find the teff I grew up eating in Ethiopia and this one comes the closest I have tried so far. I baked injera today and it came out perfect!! My two toddlers literally started eating the injera straight out the griddle. When I opened the package the smell was perfect...... the smell of the batter brought back childhood memories.....
- Amen to the Other Reviews
- I agree with all of the reviews below. I make baked goods and pancakes with 1/2 of the flour called for being teff and the other 1/2 being the gf baking flour. I have six boys and all of them love the baked goods. I also don't use sweeteners except applesauce and banana, and no oil, and the baked goods turn out just fine. So healthy! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this available.
- makes GF baking so much tastier!
- Thank you so much for this teff flour! Cooking teff grain on its own just frustrates me (ditto amaranth), bc it's small and turns goopy. But as a flour, it gives muffins that nice "crumb" you want, even without added sugar.||I regularly use teff flour as 1/3 to 1/2 the flour in quick breads where bananas and/or applesauce are the only sweetener, and with little to no oil. Does *great* stuff, an
- Thanks for making teff easier to come by
- Teff can be hard to come by so I'm grateful to you for carrying this product. I substituted a bit of teff flour for the wheat in my cinnamon sticky bun recipe and they came out great. I couldn't really taste the difference - I'm not sure that's a good or a bad thing but knowing how nutritious teff is it doesn't really matter. Check out my recipe here: [@]
- Versatile and very flavorful
- Injera takes a little bit of pre planning (the batter must ferment overnight or up to 48 hours), but it's well worth it. I use 3 tablespoons of the batter as a "starter" for my next batch, which seems to cut the time it takes to ferment. The flatbread is excellent with hummus, curries or other "dip" textured foods.||Teff flour also makes an excellent pancake, with a delicate nutty flavor.
- Super flour
- I use teff everyday. Instead of buying processed bread, I make 100% teff waffles and then put them in a toaster to bring out even more grain flavor. The recipe couldn't be easier: 1/4 c. teff flour, 1 T chia seed, salt to taste, pinch of baking soda. Add water to desired consistency. Mix quickly, not allowing the chia to absorb too much liquid. Put it in the waffle iron immediately.
- makes nice pancakes
- I made a nice bunch of pancakes from 2 parts this, 2 parts whole wheat flour, 1 part Bob's soy protein isolate, and water to desired consistency.
