Teff is ancient Ethiopian grain.It has been around at least for 10,000 years according to some historians. It grows in the highlands of Ethiopia. Some tend to see a reference to it, interpretation, in the Old Testament of the Bible.
With rising level of consumption of teff in the developed world,the price of it skyrocketing in Ethiopia for local consumers, and government not putting in place measures to regulate prices -(it rather seem to have a tendency to use teff as possible source of foreign exchange), it will not be too long before teff becomes entirely a commodity item for Ethiopians.
