Teff Origins

❂Teff originated in the Horn of Africa, between 4000 BC and 2000 BC, corresponding to what is today modern day Ethiopia. Teff was one of the earliest plants domesticated. Genetic evidence points to E. pilosa as the most likely wild ancestor. It is grown for its tiny seeds and is similar to millet and quinoa in cooking but the seed is much smaller and cooks faster, thus using less fuel.

❂In Ethiopia, Teff is the most important commodity for both production and consumption. Teff is the main ingredient to prepare INJERA, a sourdough-risen flatbread. The flatbread INJERA provide livelihood for around 6.5 million small farmers in Ethiopia.

.❂Sometimes Teff is eaten in porridge and also used to prepare different alcoholic drinks, such as beers. Finally, due to its high mineral content, Teff is also mixed with soybeans, chickpeas or other grains to manufacture baby foods.
