Not too long ago, I tried porridge made on TEFF FLAKES for the first time, and wow have I been hooked since then! Not only am I obsessed with the deep and somewhat nutty flavor – I am also so amazed by the nutritional value which the world’s smallest groat, known as ‘teff’, brings.
Compared to most other grains, teff is rich in essential fatty acids and has a complete amino acid profile, let alone its high content of vitamins and minerals! And as if that wasn’t enough, these super groats also combine a high prebiotic fiber content which stimulates the growth of good gut bacteria, with a low GI value that keeps your blood sugar stable. Yeah, I guess you get the point… As a true superfood to add to your diet, I highly encourage you to try my favorite chocolate flavored teff porridge, which I’m prettttty sure both you and your body will thank me for! 😉Print
