I was a little apprehensive about ordering these because it doesn't say raw on the package, but they sprouted well for me. I did the short soak, and put them in a sprouting jar for a couple days, and little tails emergerd! Great for making blender pancakes, tossing into a soup, or just toasting and eating with some honey. Just remember that these are a fruit - my daughter has allergies to seemingly all fruits, and cannot eat buckwheat either.

I soak it overnight, rinse it and dehydrate until crispy to make healthy breakfast cereal. I like it .

Wonderful alternative to bread on a raw food diet, but you must soak for 30 minutes then dehydrate for 1 day.

My husband and I were trying new food items, trying to stay away from flour and grains for awhile. We enjoyed the buckwheat just about anyway that I made it. I need to find more recipes and I plan on grinding it down to use as a flour as well, thank you for supplying this awesome staple food!! God Bless:)

I like buckwheat pilaf and I have used these groats ground up to make a yeast-free, egg-free, sugar-free bread.

Very good. Makes me feel full without being bloated. Taste was great!

I was disappointed in the fiber content listed on the label (fiber 0) compared to Eden Foods organic buckwheat groats (fiber 5). I contacted Bob's Red Mill regarding this and was told that Bob's product testing is done by a third party and they label accordingly and that many companies use "typical" product analysis for their labeling. Pretty educational since I thought companies run their own product tests. At any rate I will be buying Eden Foods product henceforth.

Good organic and raw. I will be sprouting these along with sunflower seeds and then mix with some raw honey and coconut oil and then put them all in a dehydrator to make raw museli.

I love these groats. I have been eating them for a month now and they really are a great addition for anyone who wants to feel more energy. I do put some bee pollen, cinnamon, and flax seed powder on them.

I don't know, if it's just some another type of buckwheat or what, it completely another taste from the buckwheat I used to eat in Russia. I can't even cook it properly, don't understand why is it so different

I could not eat it. The taste was bitter like wormwood. I had to throw it away. I think the product was not fresh.
