Our organic buckwheat white groats are not related to wheat in any way and is gluten-free! Buckwheat is actually a seed that comes from the plant "fagopyrum esculentum", which remains fairly short but becomes very widespread and develops green heart-shaped leaves with tiny white flowers.

Cultivated as a grain-like seed and a cover crop throughout Asia and in parts of Europe and North America, the seeds of the plant are commonly referred to as a pseudocereal. The seeds are rich in protein and fiber, as well as a variety of antioxidants and other nutrients, which leads many people to consider buckwheat a superfood.

 

What is the difference between buckwheat white groats and roasted kasha buckwheat?

  • Both roasted kasha and raw buckwheat groats are simply whole buckwheat seeds. The difference is that Kasha is toasted, and buckwheat white groats are not.
  • Roasting highlights the flavor but make the seeds very hard so they have to be soaked or boiled unless you want to crack a tooth.



Storage Tips:

  • Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
  • Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
  • Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
  • Mason jars make great storage containers.
  • Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
