Organic buckwheat is a summer broad leaf summer crop, that requires a cool wet growing season to produce high quality grain. Buckwheat is not related to wheat, and is therefore gluten free. These organic kernels are freshly dehulled, ensuring a mild sweet flavour and optimum nutrition.
Buckwheat has a distinctive nutty flavour, is a low GI, high in magnesium, balanced in amino acids and naturally gluten free. It is a true ancient grain that can be cooked in a similar way to rice. One part buckwheat to two parts water, bring to the boil, lower heat and simmer for approximately 30 minutes.
This organic buckwheat is grown using sustainable farming methods, and is frozen (instead of fumigated, which is standard industry practice) to keep it super fresh and retain the highest quantity of nutrients. Additionally, this buckwheat is processed in a segregated gluten free facility. Organic farming uses the best of traditional agriculture and responsiveness to the land to create biodiversity and environmental balance; a sustainable approach free from artificial intervention.
