Contrary to popular belief, buckwheat is actually not a wheat; it is a highly nutritious seed that possess numerous health benefits.
Unlike white flour, buckwheat is naturally gluten-free and serves as an alternative for individuals with gluten allergies and sensitives. In addition to being gluten-free, buckwheat has been scientifically proven to be beneficial to your body in the short and long term. Studies have shown that buckwheat contains a high number of antioxidants and other biological agents that help fight cancer, reduce heart disease and, lower bacterial infections. Nutritionally, buckwheat is packed with all of the eight essential amino acids and is a good source of fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, and copper. As a modern-day superfood, buckwheat is spreading its popularity throughout the US, Asian and Europe.
