Product Description

Food To Live® Organic Buckwheat Groats are top-quality hulled seeds of the buckwheat plant, which is actually related to sorrel and rhubarb. This means that buckwheat is not, in fact, a grain, but a healthy whole grain alternative fruit seed.

While this food is technically categorized as grain from the cooking point of view, it doesn’t contain gluten. This means it’s a perfect protein source for every vegan and vegetarian who wants to go on a Paleo diet without including eggs and dairy in their meal plan. Note that even gluten-free buckwheat isn’t considered a 100% Paleo food, but it can be used in this diet if you soak the groats before eating. Sprouting buckwheat also makes it acceptable for this healthy meal plan.

Nutritional Value

The extraordinary nutritional value of this organic whole grain substitute is the reason why buckwheat groats should be present in every pantry. First of all, they are very low in calories but high in protein, so you can include them into any diet. They are also excellent sources of essential minerals.

One cup of cooked groats contains 155 calories and:

  • Manganese (34% DRI*)
  • Copper (28% DRI)
  • Magnesium (21% DRI)
  • Phosphorus (17% DRI)

*DRI stands for Dietary Reference Intake

Health Benefits

The most important health benefits of buckwheat kernels come from the nutrients they contain as well as the fact that they are extremely low in both sugar and fat. They make a fantastic source of easily digestible proteins (6g per serving) so they are favored by vegetarian and vegan athletes.

Buckwheat is a non-allergenic food. Since it’s also gluten-free and rich in fiber, it is a good choice for people suffering from various digestive disorders.

As it’s a low glycemic food, buckwheat can also be eaten to help manage the blood sugar levels. USDA Organic Certified Buckwheat Groats from Food to Live® are completely free of toxins and any potentially harmful chemicals.

How to Enjoy Buckwheat Groats

Buckwheat flour and buckwheat noodles (soba) both can be used in a variety of delicious recipes, but it’s groats that take the top spot for the sheer variety of amazing dishes you can make with them. Bear in mind that buckwheat can be also called jadrica, grechka, kasha, gryczana and kasza, so look out for these names when looking through recipes.

To cook  groats you just need to soak them, rinse, and then cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes. After this, you can use them to make salads or serve the delicious kernels with various sauces and cooked vegetables. Be sure to try making buckwheat porridge, granola, and pancakes for breakfast to start your day in a healthy and tasty way.

    I’m on a kick to utilize buckwheat for its health benefits. I am on a low carb diet for medical reasons, and I’m sprouting them to lower the carb count a bit. Buckwheat is supposed to be good for inflammation, can help lower blood pressure and makes one think more clearly – or so some of the articles say. I’m enjoying working with buckwheat, and these groats sprouted quickly.

    For better taste, simmer it a bit on fry pan, than add water to cover it two inches above, let it boil for three minutes, cover with lid and turn off the fire. 20min later it’s ready.

    I love this stuff. I eat it daily. I don’t eat any grains nor dairy products and this replaces the grains I use to eat years ago. I lift weights and have an active lifestyle and this helps tremendously with my workouts. Generally speaking this has made my life a heck of a lot easier since I eat paleo and don’t eat grains. Will continue to order as long as I can.
