MarkalBuckwheat - organic
Brown to greenish buckwheat grains, nutritive and aromatic to consume cooked (to accompany Leguminous or other food), or after grinding to flour, for a use in various culinary preparations (bread, pies, pancakes, cookies. ..).
As quinoa or amaranth, buckwheat is often referred to as a pseudo-cereal, because it is consumed as a cereal but does not belong to the Gramineae family (which contains the classic cereals). Due to this fact, the nutritional composition of buckwheat is pretty different from that of cereals. Buckwheat has a highly nutritive grain rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants and moreover in soluble fibres. Its proteins contain all essential amino acids and thus have a high biological value.
Buckwheat is native to Mongolia. It is consumed as a cereal, but it is botanically the fruit of a plant of the same family as rhubarb and sorrel. Since it contains no gluten it is particularly suitable for people who suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
