Its usually used in flat breads (injera) in Africa where it's from. I like the rich slight sour taste

have also mixed it with other gluten-free flours here to had color and taste. Millet and sorghum are tow of them.

You can eat teff warm, in cereal form, like oatmeal. Whole grain. Buy it in the health food store or online.

What do they use it for? Ha! "They" use it to make their gluten-free crap look "whole grain". Most of the gluten-free stuff is

made from white rice, tapioca, corn, everything they use to make pigs fat. It has NO nutritional value,

at all! None. Zip. Why would you eat it? Myself, I have no problem eating anything but my family members,

no gluten, no soy, looks like I might have to add GMO's too. That pains me but so far she can have nut

butter and that's what I bake with, adding things such as teff, or chia or hemp or flax or sunflower seeds,

there are more. Millet I grow in my yard and if the birds don't eat it I get some. Teff I grow as well. I

have a large yard, I grow 50% of my own food. I am getting into this homestead thing but keep in mind I am

retired and get to play all I want.

Good luck with the teff! It's an ancient grain... from the middle east, if I recall.

I've been wanting to study teff more, but just haven't had time. It is one of the "protein" grains/flours. I do use it in my multigrain flour blend that tastes more like the 7 grain flours I used back in the day. That blend makes really good bread and pie crust. I also tried a chocolate mint cookie recipe with teff flour awhile back that was very good. The recipe came from Bob's Red Mill.

A very time comsuming project I've been working on for years is nearing completion, so I'm hoping I'll have more time to play around in the kitchen this fall. Maybe I'll finally be able to try more things with teff.

Keep in mind there is dark teff and ivory teff. Ivory teff is nicer in some baked goods but not in injera, of course. :)

Yes, love2, I did note there is dark & light & a red too I believe. I think the light might be more to my liking. However I must admit that the dark was touted as having a hazelnut type of flavor & I do love hazelnuts.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
