Buckwheat is a great choice for coeliacs and those avoiding ordinary wheat products. Buckwheat is high in beneficial antioxidant flavanoids, including rutin, which may help protect against bad cholesterol and heart disease. It contains all the essential amino acids and is full of vital complex carbohydrates as well as iron, calcium, potassium, manganese, magnesium and plenty of dietary fibre.
Buckwheat is used to make Japan’s beloved soba noodles, delicious gallettes (savoury crepes) in France and blinis in Russia. Roasting buckwheat before cooking creates an earthier, more nutty taste and aroma.
