Tenera Grains grows two varieties of teff: brown teff (sometimes called red teff) and ivory teff. They have the same nutritional profile, but the taste varies ever so slightly. Brown teff creates a darker batter and has a deeper, nuttier flavor. Ivory teff is lighter in color and is a bit more delicate in taste which makes it ideal for sweeter baked goods.

Teff is naturally non-gmo.

Our whole grain teff is ELISA tested to be gluten free; however, our teff is milled into flour in a facility that processes wheat and has trace amounts of gluten. Teff is naturally not genetically modified and there are no added preservatives. Because of this, we are able to use the harvested seed from the fall for the planting in the spring.

Tenera Grains is now selling teff granola! Growing up, we usually had homemade granola with lots of oats, maple syrup and butter. Instead of using butter, we’re using coconut oil to bring you the crunch that so many granola lovers crave and we’re adding more plant based nutrition from nuts, seeds and grains. Maple syrup is still our preferred sweetener and combined with a hint of cinnamon, we think you’re going to love our Teffola.
