Ceres Organics Buckwheat
Originating thousands of years ago in China, buckwheat has been a part of the diets of many 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. As well as providing a nutty flavour to your dish, buckwheat is also a fantastic source of dietary fibre and plant-based protein.
Contrary to its name, buckwheat has nothing to do with wheat, and is instead actually a fruit seed related to rhubarb or sorrel. This means that it is naturally gluten-free. It can be used in place of rice, couscous or pasta, or cooked with your favourite plant-based milk for a delicious breakfast porridge.
How to use:
You can use these grains in any place where you would normally serve rice, couscous or pasta. They can also be cooked with plant-based milk for a delicious porridge, or served toasted to give salads a satisfying crunch.
Once opened, store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place and keep away from direct sunlight.
