Buckwheat groats  - stock available!

Buckwheat is not actually a grain at all! Buckwheat is the seed of a flowering annual plant, and is called a pseudocereal. Its seeds are grain-like, each having a 3-sided distinctive triangular appearance with pointed corners. Buckwheat is gluten-free and the groats we use at Organic Flour Mills are organic.

Buckwheat has the botanical name Fagopyrum esculentum. Buckwheat not related to wheat at all, despite the name! It is often grown as a good cover crop. Buckwheat is hulled into buckwheat groats, and can then be sprouted, or it can be soaked and dehydrated on low heat into bukinis.

Buckwheat can be soaked and eaten raw, or milled into flour. Buckwheat is totally gluten-free and is high in fibre, B vitamins, and some of the essential minerals. Buckwheat is also a complete protein and is very low in fats, as well as having a low Glycemic Index which enables it to be used to control blood sugar, making it popular with diabetics. Buckwheat is a healthy addition to any diet, not just the gluten-free.
