Have you heard of Teff?
Teff is a naturally gluten free grain that is packed with nutrition. It contains greater calcium than a glass of milk, the protein levels of an extra-large egg, twice the iron of quinoa and has high levels of fibre, zinc and thiamine. Also containing high levels of resistant starch carbohydrate, it is great for maintaining gut health and blood sugar balance.
Originating from Ethiopia, Outback Harvest are growing, harvesting and processing the versatile grain on their farm in NSW. With both brown and ivory Teff available as a grain or flour, this grain makes a highly nutritious substitute for rice, quinoa and flour and also makes an excellent gluten free, vegan and vegetarian ingredient for burger patties, cakes, porridge, protein balls, protein smoothies and so much more.

We love that this remarkable grain is grown and processed in Australia and are proud to now have Teff stocked in our Salamanca, Davey St, Kingston and Bellerive stores, right here in Hobart.
