Organic Buckwheat Flakes are light and simple to use.
Organic Buckwheat flakes are derived from whole buckwheat groats. Buckwheat flakes are made by gently heating the hulled grain or ‘seed’ and then rolling flat . These versatile flakes can be used in breads, cakes and biscuits for an alternative to traditional wheat based flours. Buckwheat flakes are nutrient rich and a great option for those looking for alternatives due to allergy or intolerance.
These nutritious flakes have gained popularity because despite the name they are naturally wheat free. Buckwheat flakes are light flakes which are simple to use in the place of other breakfast grains or in baking. Buckwheat is a ‘psuedo-grain’ like quinoa and amaranth – a seed that we eat like a grain.
Organic Buckwheat was first cultivated in 4000 BC in Europe but is also known for its popularity in Asia. It is commonly found in Eastern European cuisine, with a porridge like dish called Kasha being one of Russians national dishes. Kasha is served sweet or savoury as a side dish or main.
