  • Further Information

    Buckwheat is an annual plant from the knotweed family (Polygonaceae) and is native to China and Tibet. Nowadays it is also grown in the Netherlands. The name 'book' - beech and 'wheat' - wheat reveals that the buckwheat seed resembles small beech nuts, with the same characteristic shape.

    Buckwheat is a 'pseudograin': the seeds, flour and all other derivatives of buckwheat are gluten-free. Buckwheat is a good 'bee crop', bees like to feed on it. It produces an aromatic honey that is very popular.

    Buckwheat is very nutritious, rich in fiber and easily digestible. It is rich in the minerals magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, manganese and copper. It also contains vitamins B1 and B6, many proteins and the amino acids lysine and arginine.

    Buckwheat flour contains more antioxidants than other grains. Buckwheat also scores low on the glycemic index, so it keeps blood sugar levels in balance.

    Organic buckwheat is delicious as a replacement for rice, potatoes and pasta, with a salad, breakfast dishes and stir-fry dishes.
