Teff for Olympic athletes

Teff in the sports sector. The Papendal Sports Center works with top athletes in the Netherlands. In a joint study with the center (2015), researchers found significant effects of teff on improving sports performance. As a result, Olympic athletes began consuming MP-Teff in the form of Sportsgrain bars.

Sportsgrain, baked as normal bread, is available at the center’s restaurant (Elite Sports Restaurant) which caters to the elite athletes that train there. Additionally, crispy Teff Flakes (and, more recently, Teff Pasta) can be found in the restaurant. During the Ocean Volvo Race, teff flakes were eaten for breakfast by the athletes.
