Description

Buckwheat belongs to a group of foods commonly called pseudocereals.

Pseudocereals are seeds that are consumed in the same way as cereal grains, but do not grow on grasses. Other common pseudocereals include quinoa and amaranth.

Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, and is therefore gluten-free.

Buckwheat is processed into groats, flour and noodles, or used in buckwheat tea.

The groats can be used in much the same way as rice. They are the main ingredient in many traditional European and Asian dishes.

Buckwheat has become popular as a health food in many countries, due to its high amounts of minerals and various antioxidants. It has also been shown to provide health benefits, including improved blood sugar control.

The grains are typically brown and irregular in shape.

There are two types of buckwheat that are most widely grown for food: common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) and tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tartaricum).

Buckwheat is mainly grown in the northern hemisphere, especially in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Kazakhstan and China.

while Buckwheat is traditionally classified as a grain, it is actually a plant seed.
