As reported on CNN, this past year the Ethiopian government finally relaxed rules on the exportation of teff and now teff flour and grain can be found in specialty markets and on-line. The result is that teff is now a cash crop supporting production in Ethiopia. Demand for the grain in different parts of the world is growing. Teff is likely to become a popular grain among the health conscious as it is gluten-free, and contains more protein, fiber, and minerals than the white all-purpose wheat flour commonly sold in the US. The only downside is that the grain is costly, averaging between $6 and$12 a pound. Still, I am happy that buying the grain or flour will help support farmers in Ethiopia. Now, I just have to figure out how to make authentic tasting injera.
