Ethiopian Habesha Teff is a naturally gluten free grain that’s high in fibre, iron and magnesium and is the only grain known to contain significant amounts of Vitamin C. The prebiotic fibre is an especially key benefit for IBS sufferers. Lovegrass Ethiopia was born from a mission to share the benefits and uniqueness of Ethiopian Teff with the rest of the world. In doing so, they work directly with local farmers to create a market that pays them a fair price, enabling them to invest and grow their own small businesses that can be passed onto the next generation.
