Organic Buckwheat Flour is made from 100% whole grain buckwheat groats. Despite the name, buckwheat isn’t related to wheat and is naturally gluten-free (note: this is not processed in our gluten-free facility)! Use buckwheat flour for making delicious buckwheat pancakes, soba noodles, and blini, and as a replacement for wheat flour in baked goods. Buckwheat flour is a good source of dietary fiber and contains essential amino acids. The buckwheat plant is actually a pseudocereal, not a grain. The pyramid-shaped raw buckwheat kernels are harvested and ground into surprisingly rich flour. Unlike light buckwheat flour, our flour contains little black specks that come from the ground seed hull. Buckwheat flour is a must-have for making traditional Russian blini or buckwheat crepes. It has a unique, assertive flavor that is especially great in both quick and yeast bread. In wheat bread, use half buckwheat flour to add a rich, nutlike flavor and darker color.
