The word ‘teff’ originates from the Amharic word ‘teffa’ which means ‘lost’ due to the small size of the grain or from the Arabic word ‘tahf’ used by the Semites in South Arabia.

Teff grows naturally in three different colours – Brown, Ivory, and White Tegg Grains. The White Teff flour is, therefore, wholegrain white teff.
