Discover buckwheat, the nutritional wonder that is a mainstay of traditional Eastern European cuisine. The robust flavor of this quick-cooking gluten free grain is perfect for salads, soups and cereal.
My lifelong fascination with whole grains has taken me to the far reaches of the globe. On these journeys I have discovered many delicious treasures, grains that nourished the world's greatest ancient civilizations. I just knew I needed to bring these nutritious superfoods home with me so I could share their wondrous stories. Like this story of buckwheat...
Buckwheat groats are gluten free seeds from a plant related to rhubarb. First cultivated in Southeast Asia thousands of years age, in time buckwheat journeyed west and took root in Eastern Europe, where it became the star of many classic dishes. Buckwheat provides complete protein, including all the essential amino acids. Use buckwheat groats in any recipe that calls for whole grains. The bold flavor is delicious in porridge, pilaf, soups and salads.
I am so pleased that you have found Bob's Red Mill Organic Whole Grain Buckwheat Groats. I invite you to explore all of the Grains of Discovery, our extraordinary array of ancient grains.

This buckwheat is not fried. It's good news. But it can't sprout. It's very very bad news. And during cooking it looks smashed, not friable.

I am new to buckwheat. Even though I can't say I love it like quinoa, it is a healthy alternative to rice, and I am happy with the quality of this product.
