Description

Gluten Free Organic Puffed Buckwheat is a great breakfast staple.

Organic Puffed Buckwheat is a convenient way to bring buckwheat to your breakfast table.  These light, crunchy puffs are the heath food version of ‘rice crispies’.  They make a great quick breakfast on their own or added to muesli mixes for variety in texture.

Organic Buckwheat was first cultivated in 4000 BC in Europe but is also known for its popularity in Asia.  Most Buckwheat is grown in the Northern Hemisphere with Central and Eastern Europe being the best producers.  It is commonly found in Eastern European cuisine.  Buckwheat is nutrient rich and a great option for those looking for alternatives due to allergies or simply variety in their cooking.  It has an earthy, nutty flavour which goes well in a range of recipes.

Buckwheat products have gained popularity because despite the name they are wheat free and naturally contain no gluten.  Buckwheat can be used like a grain but is actually a seed. Similarly to quinoa and amaranth, buckwheat is referred to as a ‘pseudo-cereal’ or ‘pseudo-grain’ as it is a seed that can be used like a grain.

If you want to try other buckwheat products we also sell organic buckwheat flour, organic buckwheat groats and organic buckwheat flakes.
