Buckwheat

Introducing Premium Buckwheat

Despite its name, Buckwheat contains no actual wheat. It is in fact a seed, a cousin to rhubarb. By any name, Buckwheat is prized for its versatility, distinct earthy flavor, and myriad of health benefits.

First domesticated in China over 8,000 years ago, Buckwheat is naturally gluten-free, making a great substitute anywhere wheat is used. Buckwheat noodles, pancakes and cereals have been popular for centuries, but today its use is being expanded to breads, desserts, salads, and as a healthy alternative to rice. Loaded with antioxidants and B vitamins, while rich in fiber and protein, our Buckwheat Groats are a time-tested and tasty addition to practically anything you can think of.
