Our teff is certified organic and perfect for all baking and cooking purposes.
Convenient & safe storage
This teff is certified organic and non-GMO, and comes in five-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container), containing 34 lbs. net weight. When you store teff at home, it needs to be protected in a couple of ways. First, it needs to be protected from a variety of little critters who'd like to get to it before you do. Weevils and rodents, for example. You also need to protect your teff from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our teff comes in provide full protection against these storage risks. They have airtight gasket-sealed lids and oxygen absorber packets that remove the oxygen from the air in the bucket after we put the lid on. Our buckets safely lock out pests, so your teff enjoys complete peace and quiet until you want to use it. Note: If you don't already have a bucket lid removal tool, they make lid removal easy (see lower section of this web page).
In whole grains, the plant's cellular walls protect nutrients from oxidation. The process of oxidation begins to occur as soon as grain is ground, exposing the cell's contents to oxygen in the air. Flour that is several days (or more) old, has been exposed to oxygen that inevitably diminishes its nutritional value. The way to get full nutrition from whole grain foods is to mill them when you need them, right in your kitchen. Modern high-speed grain mills make it fast and easy to enjoy the freshest, best tasting and most nutritious food imaginable!
All of our whole grain teff is cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Teff that isn't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!) Our teff is cleaned to 99.99% purity by weight. To clean, the teff is processed using a screener, gravity table, de-stoner, and magnets. Achieving this level of quality may require further processing yet, through a color sorter. No liquids, soaps or additives of any kind are used in the cleaning process.
Our organic teff has a shelf life of 10+ years when unopened and stored in a cool, dark, dry environment.
All of Pleasant Hill Grain's whole grain products are natural (non-GMO).
