  • Definition

    Buckwheat groats are the hulled buckwheat seed. Raw groats are a pale yellow-green color and soft enough to be edible when raw. See: !!Buckwheat||tsop:buckwheat!!

  • Health considerations

    Buckwheat is high in fiber and protein and a source of B vitamins (excluding B12), iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium. Buckwheat is a source of antioxidants and flavonoids; roasting to form kasha reduces antioxidant levels. The protein quality of buckwheat has been reported as superior to common cereal grains, and can lower cholesterol levels.

  • Keep in mind

    Buckwheat is unrelated to wheat and does not naturally contain gluten. Buckwheat groats can be eaten raw, or can be soaked and rinsed to produce a soft cereal with improved protein digestibility.
