Buckwheat Flour (Gluten-free)
Buckwheat Flour (Gluten-free)
Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) is a plant cultivated for its grain-like seeds and as a cover crop. These are gluten-free seeds from a plant related to rhubarb. The outer husk is pulled away and the grain-like fruit is harvested and eaten.
They are a complete protein because they include all the essential amino acids. Naturally Gluten-free and full of Proteins and Fiber. Enjoy this nutrient-rich superfood brought to you in a convenient way, peeled and ready to cook, soak or sprout. Buckwheat grows so fast it crowds out most weeds. Hence no pesticides or fertilizers are needed to grow this crop and it is by default organic.
First cultivated in Southeast Asia thousands of years ago, in time buckwheat journeyed west and took root in Eastern Europe, where it became the star of many classic dishes. They are very nutritious and growing in popularity in many nations across the globe.
Our Buckwheat is farmed at altitudes as high as 4,400 meters and the period between sowing to harvest is only 30 days. Despite being a popular grain and staple in Eastern Europe, buckwheat has in recent times been grown with great success in our Himalayas.
How To Use
Buckwheat has a great flavour that suits bread baking and can be substituted in many recipes where regular flour is used. You can add a little buckwheat flour to almost any recipe that calls for regular flour. In wheat bread, use half buckwheat flour to add a rich, earthy and nutlike flavour and darker colour. Buckwheat flour is a must-have for making traditional Russian blini or buckwheat crepes.
