List of Ingredients

Buckwheat

 

A little Buckwheat history finds that it was first cultivated in southeast Asia, possibly around 6000 BC and spread from there to Europe and Central Asia.  It is believed that it was domesticated in western China and has been documented in the Balkans of Europe around 4000 BC.  The pollen from buckwheat has been found in Japan dating from 4000 BC.

Buckwheat is thought to be the one domestic crop to withstand the highest elevations.  It is grown on the edge the Tibetan Plateau or on the Plateau itself. 

Buckwheat was one of the earliest crops introduced by Europeans to North America. 

Buckwheat is another grain considered gluten-free and is used as a rice alternative in gluten free diets. Unhulled buckwheat can be sprouted and used for salads.
     
These triangular seeds are most often used to make the flour or sprouts.  Unhulled buckwheat is what gives buckwheat pancakes that dark gray color since the hulls are black and the inner grain is light tan.
