Organic Hulled Buckwheat
The ‘’rice’’ of Nordic countries
Our organic hulled buckwheat is grown in Canada and follows strict organic agricultural standards.
Despite what its name might suggest, buckwheat is naturally gluten-free and is processed in a dedicated 100% gluten-free facility.
This versatile, nutritious seed is packed with nutrients such as iron. It's also rich in dietary fibre, which helps regulate digestion, as well as magnesium and calcium. This small triangular seed contains up to 12% of its own weight in protein. It also contains fagopyritols, that help lower cholesterol and control diabetes, as well as tryptophan, which the body converts into the sleep hormone melatonin.
Organic hulled buckwheat.
May contain traces of sesame, nuts and soy.
Can be preserved in a cool, dry cupboard protected from light and humidity.
Culinary Uses & Recipes
Buckwheat can be used in many ways: you can eat it on its own as a side, use it as a substitute for rice in risotto, as a base for a hearty salad, in a granola or energy bars. It can also be ground into flour and used to make various baked goods and traditional Breton galettes. We love buckwheat for its nutty, slightly astringent taste and great texture. It's a welcome addition to any well-stocked pantry!
