Organic Buckwheat Groats are a source of manganese.

They can be used like a grain but are 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.

Organic Buckwheat Groats are 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.  If you want to try baking with ground buckwheat we sell organic buckwheat flour here.

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, with a porridge like dish called Kasha being one of Russians national dishes.  Kasha is served sweet or savoury as a side dish or main.

Family Tip:

  1. We like buckwheat best in a garden style salad with fresh herbs and finely chopped vegetables but it can also be used in the place of rice and other grains in any recipe.
  2. Try buckwheat porridge on a cold day.
  3. If you are feeling creative you can grind them down into flour and make gluten free cookies, muffins or pancakes.
  4. Buckwheat sprouts well and if you have time you can dry and grind the sprouts to make activated buckwheat flour!
  5. If you are short of time and want to experiment then you can buy buckwheat flour here.
