This is one 500g portion of organic Hulled Buckwheat which has been freshly packed for you.
Despite its name Buckwheat is not a cereal or a wheat product, buckwheat is a fruit seed that comes from the buckwheat plant, also known as the beech wheat plant, which is related to rhubarb. While buckwheat is a seed, it is mostly commonly used as a grain as it is low in calories and abundant in complex carbohydrates and fiber. Buckwheat is a nutritious gluten free plant that has been popular in recent years due to the increased awareness of gluten allergies and people with celiac disease.
Buckwheat is believed to have come from either the Balkan region of Europe or southwest China and the Himalayan region and is now grown around the world as a fast growing crop variety. Pre soaking buckwheat overnight is optimal and you can boil, steam or toast buckwheat as you would conventional rice. Organic buckwheat can be served on its own, with plant based meats or vegetables and some even add it to fruit and spices to make a tasty breakfast.
This organic Hulled Buckwheat has been grown under the best organic agriculture practices in Europe and has been CERTIFIED ORGANIC IE-ORG-03.
