Recommended Power Foods - Part 9 - Grains #9, #10 and #11
(Information from The Power of Food - Bonnie Raffel R. D., Author)

#9 - Soy Flour - Soy Flour is ground from soybeans and is very high in protein and low in carbohydrates.  This flour is available from full fat to low fat versions.  Full fat soy flour contains 20% fat and 35% protein, the low fat contains 6% fat and 45% protein, and the defatted soy flour contains 1% fat and 50% protein.  Combine this flour with wheat flour to increase the protein content when baking.

#10 - Triticale Flour - this flour is manmade by cross breading wheat and rye.  When this flour is milled, it contains both nutritional values of wheat and rye flours.

#11 - Teff Flour - Teff is a fine stemmedtufted grain grass.  The teff grain is the smallest grain in the world and measures 1/32 of an inch in diameter.  Because of the teff bran and germ size being small, the bran and germ stay intact during processing making it nutritionally dense.  Teff is gluten free, high in protein, carbohydrate, fiber, and many other minerals.
