Description
 
While many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel making it a suitable substitute for grains for people who are sensitive to wheat or other grains that contain protein glutens. Buckwheat flowers are very fragrant and are attractive to bees that use them to produce a special, strongly flavored, dark honey. Excellent source of manganese and magnesium and a good source of iron, calcium and selenium. Also rich in amino acids lycine and tryptophan. Buckwheat also contains rutin, a heteroside with Vitamin K activity, which strengthens fragile capillary walls. Rutin thus encourages good circulation. Flavonoids like rutin, are phytonutrients that protect against disease by extending the action of vitamin C and acting as antioxidants. Buckwheat's lipid-lowering activity is largely due to rutin and other flavonoid compounds. These compounds help maintain blood flow, keep platelets from clotting excessively (platelets are compounds in blood that, when triggered, clump together, thus preventing excessive blood loss, and protect LDL from free radical oxidation into potentially harmful cholesterol oxides. All these actions help to protect against heart disease.

buckwheat groats from China April 24, 2016
Reviewer: Lyndell Robinson from Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC Canada  
I was disappointed when I received these to learn that they were from China. Doesn't Canada grow buckwheat. I'm already concerned that buckwheat already has levels of nickel that affect people with allergies and if this product comes from China I would bet the levels of metals are higher.

I grind these up every morning along with chia and hemp seed, moistened with whatever flavor of the day's smoothie.

Good Stuff! March 30, 2010
Reviewer: Gabi from Mississauga, ON Canada  
An absolutely GREAT breakfast cereal base.  Mixed with some fruit and/or nuts and/or seeds,  and topped with almond mylk... it doesn't get much better.  Wonderful 'crunch' factor!

Also wonderful mixed with flax seed for crackers.
