About Buckwheat


  • buckwheat is a knotweed plant and its seeds have grain-like properties
  • it has been cultivated since ancient times in Siberia and Eastern Europe
  • the main growing areas today are China and Eastern Europe, but even in Germany, buckwheat as an alternative crop has become popular among motivated organic farmers
  • its blossoms are helpful to threatened bees thus helping to preserve the natural biodiversity of our environment
  • buckwheat is gluten free and source of the essential amino acid lysine which is otherwise mainly found in meat products
  • the inedible husks have to be removed from the kernels which then can be used like other grains.
  • buckwheat is a traditional basic staple food in Russia but also the French kitchen uses buckwheat for Crêpes and bakery.
