Whether you’re eating the grain itself or the flour, teff retains all its kernel components as it gets processed through harvest, cleaning, and milling. You can be assured teff preserves all of its nutrients by the time it reaches your table.
Though teff is about the size of a poppy seed it is very nutrient dense. Teff leads all the grains – by a wide margin – in its calcium content, with 1 cup of cooked teff offering 123mg, about the same amount of calcium as in a half-cup of cooked spinach.
Teff is high in resistant starch, a newly discovered type of dietary fiber that can benefit blood sugar management, weight control, and colon health. It’s estimated that 20-40% of the carbohydrates in teff are resistant starches.
