The Teff: a gluten-free cereal

Teff is a cereal first grown in Ethiopia 5.000 years ago. It is rich in fiber, carbohydrates and minerals (calcium, iron and magnesium). It is highly appreciated by sports practitioners for its properties in helping to restore energy levels. This drink has no added sugars. It only contains naturally occurring sugars. But its main virtue is that it is a gluten-free cereal making it perfect for all people with gluten intolerance.

Amandín Organic Teff drink is certified a by Comité de Agricultura Ecológica de la Comunitat Valenciana, CAECV, and for the Comité de Agricultura Ecológica de la Unión Europea
