    Just looking to confirm portion information — it seems the website is incorrect (as is the packaging). If 1/4 cup dry is 1 serving (as per the nutrition panel and other sources I checked), cooking 1/2 cup of dry grain should yield 2 servings, not 4. Right?

      Hi Bonnie,
      We’re sorry for the confusion. The serving size for nutritional information purposes is 1/4 cup of dry, uncooked grain. However, if you prepare the basic cooking instructions which calls for 1/2 cup of dry grain (2 serving size portions) the Teff will expand when cooked and yield enough for 4 portions; you’re only preparing 2 servings but the grain will double or triple in size when cooked as it absorbs water, so you’ll end up with a lot more than 1/2 cup. For the sake of counting the calories and other nutritional information, though, you’re only eating 2 serving sizes (1/2 cup dry grain).

      Hi Pat,
      You can use both cooked teff and cooked quinoa in your salad though we would recommend cooking the grains separately as they may require different ratios of water and different cooking times.
