A closer look at the 5 nutrient-rich whole grain flours in our pancake mix

Millet flour: Millet is an ancient grain, rich in B vitamins, which helps support metabolism, increase immunity and enhance energy levels. Originating in North Africa, Millet is often thought of as food “for the birds”.

Teff flour: Teff is an ancient grain originating in Ethopia, where it is still a staple of the country’s diet. Traditionally, teff flour was used to make a fermented pancake. This nutritional powerhouse is high in iron (our pancake mix has 15% RDA of iron), protein, calcium and fiber. Iron is essential to delivering oxygen throughout the body and increasing energy levels.

Buckwheat flour: Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, rather buckwheat comes from the fruit of the buckwheat plant. Buckwheat is rich in zinc, which helps to prevent a weak immune system and regulate blood sugar, as well as B vitamins. Traditionally, buckwheat is used in pancakes and noodles.

Whole Grain Corn Flour: Corn flour is a good source of B vitamins. Corn flour is considered gluten free, although typically it is cross-contaminated in manufacturing. The corn flour we use at purely elizabeth is certified gluten-free and non-gmo.

Garbanzo Fava Bean Flour: Garbanzo fava bean flour contains high levels of protein and fiber. Garbanzo bean flour is traditionally used in Middle Eastern cooking and baking.
