Buckwheat originated in China thousands of years ago and is a staple of many Asian and European cultures. In Japan, soba noodles are made with it. In France, gallettes and blinis are made with it. Buckwheat is not related to wheat, despite its name. This seed belongs to the same family as rhubarb and sorrel. Buckwheat is a gluten-free food and is an excellent option for people who avoid conventional wheat products. This tiny seed is packed with beneficial antioxidant flavonoids, including rutin, which may help prevent bad cholesterol and heart disease. In addition to iron, potassium, manganese, magnesium, calcium, and plenty of dietary fibre, it contains all the essential amino acids as well as vital complex carbohydrates.
The rich flavour of BUCKWHEAT FLOUR complements many recipes and elevates the mundane to the marvellous. Itâ€™s popular in many nations for its nutritional benefits - Eastern Europe for blinis, the US for crepes and pancakes, Asia for Japanese soba noodles.
