Discover buckwheat, the nutritional wonder that is a mainstay of traditional Eastern European cuisine. Organic Buckwheat Groats are the hulled seeds of the buckwheat plant. These soft white seeds have a mild flavor, but when toasted or roasted, they have a delightfully intense flavor. Groats can be steam-cooked like rice for salads and side dishes or ground in your own mill into fresh flour. Use your freshly ground Buckwheat flour in homemade soba noodles.
What is buckwheat? Buckwheat groats are gluten free seeds from a plant related to rhubarb. The outer husk is pulled away and the grain-like fruit is harvested and eaten. First cultivated in Southeast Asia thousands of years ago, in time buckwheat journeyed west and took root in Eastern Europe, where it became the star of many classic dishes. Buckwheat is full of nutrients, making it popular in many nations across the globe. An excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, each 1/4 cup of Buckwheat also contains 6 grams of protein and 8% of your recommended daily value of iron. Buckwheat provides complete protein. It has an amino acid score of 99.
The robust flavor of this quick-cooking gluten free grain is perfect for salads, soups and cereal. Organic Buckwheat Groats also make an excellent hot breakfast porridge or side dish at dinner and can replace rice or any other grain called for in pilafs, casseroles and more. Use buckwheat groats in any recipe that calls for whole grains.
