Lovegrass Ethiopia has been awarded a sliver and bronze award in the Free From Food Awards with the world’s first 100% teff pasta. The white fusilli teff pasta won a Silver Award in the ‘Free From Foods Innovation Award’ and also received a Bronze ‘Free From Food Best Product From a Start-Up Award’. This follows their first win, ‘Innovative Better-For-You Product of the Year’ at Food Matters Live during their launch.
Lovegrass Ethiopia introduced the world’s first 100% teff pasta. 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 teff grain has been ground into flour, mixed with water and turned into fusilli pasta that can be used in place of any pasta-based dishes.
Founder Yonas Alemu said, “We’re delighted that our teff pasta has been so well received from both our customers who are actively looking for vegan and/or gluten-free options that taste great, while also being recognised by so many respected judges within the food industry. We’ve launched with a small range of teff products including pasta, flour, grains and a pancake and waffle mix, and due to high demand, are looking to expand the range during 2019.”
Lovegrass Ethiopia products are available on Amazon , Planet Organic, Selfridges, and As Nature Intended.
