I have came across the word teff or tef for the first time when I was reading about Ethiopian runners and what they eat. Teff is a cereal grain native to Northeastern Africa and Southwestern Arabia. The word teff means “lost”, which is based on a fact that the grains are so small that dropped grains will be impossible to find again.
Teff is the primary ingredient in injera. Injera is a type of fermented bread served with most meals like classical bread in many countries.
From teff flour you can of course prepare cookies or cakes like with any grain flour. But what makes teff so special is that teff is gluten-free and is rich on minerals like magnesium which is essential for proper muscles functionality.
