Despite its name, buckwheat is unrelated to wheat and is, in fact, a highly nutritious fruit seed similar to quinoa and amaranth. Its versatility and good value make buckwheat popular beyond gluten-free diets, though. It contains protein and soluble fibre, and its rich in complex carbohydrates. While most people think buckwheat as a whole grain, it is actually a seed that is high in both protein and fiber. It supports the cardiac health and can help prevent diabetes and digestive disorders. These seeds are also called 'groats' and are packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants like rutin, tannins, and catechin, and are often called as Superfoods.
These soft white seeds have a mild flavor, but when toasted or roasted, they have a delightfully intense flavor. Buckwheat Groats can be steam-cooked like rice for salads, porridge and cereals for breakfast.
