Our raw, sprouted, 100% organic buckwheat groats (that’s the name for buckwheat kernels) are packed with manganese, copper, phosphorus and magnesium for bone and circulation health. Plus, whole grains like buckwheat not only help lower LDL cholesterol, they deliver fiber, as much protein per half-cup as two eggs, and a range of antioxidants.
Tannins, commonly found in tea and wine but rarely in grains, fight infection. Lignans and flavonoids protect against cancer and heart disease. Buckwheat is particularly rich in “bound” antioxidants, which are activated by the bacteria in the gut and continue working in the body much longer than other types.
Buckwheat groats are a wonderful gluten-free addition to sweet and savory dishes. They liven up salads, add texture and nuttiness to risottos and veggie burgers, and make delicious granola. For a lovely, simple breakfast, try cooking up some buckwheat groats with a pinch of salt, then enjoying them with maple syrup, cinnamon, and fresh fruit.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in buckwheat It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful groat. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
FUN FACT! Despite its name, buckwheat is not really a grain. It’s more closely related to rhubarb than to wheat, and the groat that we grind into flour is its fruit.
