What is it?
Buckwheat, despite its name, is not actually wheat. In fact it is not even a grain.

It is a fruit, belonging to the Achene family of fruits, which includes strawberries. Buckwheat is used like a cereal grain. Called a ‘pseudocereal’ and unrelated to wheat, it is naturally gluten-free, perfect for wheat sensitivity.

Buckwheat has a distinct nutty flavour, add it to soups and stews. Ideal for a gluten-free porridge or tabouli.

Good for us - more in Health Benefits below:

Certified Organic Hulled Buckwheat Groats/Grains - Gluten Free (500g) by Eclipse Wholefoods
How to enjoy:
- Can be sprouted and added to stir fries, salads or breads.
- Or soak and then toast and add to muesli or eat as a snack in trail mixes.
- Cook - Add to soups and stews for added nutrition.
Boil and simmer for 25 minutes or until tender.

1. Soak in 2-3 times more water (cool) for 20-60 minutes - buckwheat groats soak up water very quickly.
2. Rinse with cool water, at least 3 times until the water is clear - buckwheat produces very starchy water so rinse very, very well.
3. Rinse thoroughly again at least 3 times a day.
4. Drain well to avoid groats becoming waterlogged.
5. Keep in ambient room temperature away from direct sunlight in your sprouter.
6. Eat anytime from when the tiny tails appear.
7. Dry and drain well before storing the refrigerator if necessary, or eat immediately.

Health Benefits:

1. Rutin - a powerful capillary wall strengthener.

2. Lecithin - Brain Boost super food. 20% of the brain is made up of lecithin. Research suggests that regularly consuming foods rich in lecithin may actually prevent anxiety, depression, brain fog, mental fatigue and generally make the brain sharper and clearer.

3. Lecithin - the perfect cholesterol balancer which soaks up 'bad' cholesterol and prevents it from being absorbed. Lecithin neutralises toxins and purifies the lymphatic system, relieving over work done by the liver. It is also known to lower high blood pressure.

4. Complete Protein - one of the most complete sources of protein on the planet, containing all eight amino acids. Ideal for diabetics and those who want to reduce sugary carbohydrate intake, to balance blood sugar levels.

6. Iron - healthy blood.

7. Magnesium, Calcium, Boron - helps reduce/prevent osteoporosis.

8. Buckwheatlitol - can change into the D-Chiro-Inositol, which encourages the ability of trypsin to balance fat and blood sugar levels.

9. Quercetin - powerful antioxidant.

10. SOD stands for Super Oxide Dismutase. It is the powerful antioxidant enzyme produced by the body. Studies show that SOD levels within the body decrease with age and in conditions of chronic inflammation. Providing the nutrient building blocks has been shown to increase the body’s ability to make SOD within the cells of the body.
