Buckwheat (hulled, organic) - 1kg
Originating thousands of years ago in China, buckwheat has been a part of the diets of Asian and European cultures for many years. It is used to make Japan's beloved soba noodles, delicious gallettes in France and blinis in Russia. Contrary to its name, buckwheat has nothing to do with wheat. It is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel. A naturally gluten-free food, buckwheat is a great choice for coeliacs and those avoiding ordinary wheat products. A heavyweight in nutrition, each tiny seed is packed with beneficial antioxidants, essential amino acids, complex carbohydrates, fibre and other nutrients. Roasting buckwheat (called Kasha) before cooking creates an earthier, nuttier taste and aroma.
