Teff is a fine grain that's been used in traditional Ethiopian cooking for centuries; now, Amandín is using it as a healthy substitute for milk.

The Amandín Organic Teff Drink is low-fat and only gets its sweetness from the natural sugars in the gluten-free teff cereal itself. In total, there are only four simple ingredients that are used to make this beverage, which is significant even in comparison to other vegetable- or nut-based beverages. As a milk alternative, this teff-based drink has a color and a creamy texture that looks just like ordinary cow's milk.

In addition to teff, other ancient grains like millet, quinoa and buckwheat are also becoming popular bases for plant-based milk alternatives. In recent years, sales of cow's milk have been dropping as more alternative milk beverages are being introduced to the market.
