Loving Earth Buckinis, Activated Buckwheat Cereal (Organic, Fairtrade) - 450g
It looks like a grainy cereal, it sounds like some kind of wheat – but surprisingly enough, buckwheat is none of those. It is actually the seed of a fruit. In fact, buckwheat is not related to wheat at all, it comes from the sorrel, knotweed and rhubarb family.
One of the distinguishing features of buckwheat is that it does not contain any gluten, making it a great alternative for people who are intolerant. It has a high protein content, has all essential amino acids and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine.
To activate buckwheat, Loving Earth soak it, wash and rinse it, then dehydrate it at low temperatures (under 40 degrees celcius). This allows for easier digestion and greater absorption of nutrients.
Plain Buckinis have no flavouring and are simply activated buckwheat.
Buckwheat is a great alternative or addition to any rice, wheat or pasta type dishes, it’s great in soups and can also be used to make biscuits and cakes.
It’s great for breakfast or as a snack at anytime - serve with your favourite milk, fresh fruits, berries, nuts, superfoods and seeds for added nutrition.
