Teff is high in protein with a great combination of eight essential amino acids needed for the body’s growth and repair. It has high amounts of calcium (1 cup of cooked teff offers about 1/2 cup of calcium found in cooked spinach), manganese, phosphorous, iron, copper, aluminum, barium, thiamin, and vitamin C (which isn’t generally found in grains).
Low In Sodium-Teff could also be great for those seeking to lower their blood pressure and deal with a heart healthy diet. Unprocessed teff is a better alternative compared with pre-processed, cooked teff which steadily comes with preservatives or additives that are high in sodium. If you are worried, at all times double check nutritional labels.
