Did you know? Despite the name, Buckwheat is actually not a wheat (grass family) or cereal but a seed from a flowering plant related to Rhubarb.
Organic buckwheat groats are ideal for adding to soups and salads, but can also be enjoyed as a hot breakfast porridge or a side dish with a main meal.
Buckwheat’s strong nutritional value has re-ignited interest in this ancient "grain". It is raw and a complete source of protein that delivers all essential amino acids. In fact, when consumed with beans and cereal grains, its unique amino acid profile gives buckwheat the potential to boost the protein value of the other grains.
If you are on a plant-based diet, you would know how important it is to get protein from other sources, so buckwheat in your pantry is kind of a must, we would say ;-)
