Organic Buckwheat Flour
Despite its name Buckwheat is is not actually related to wheat. It’s a seed not a grass or a legume, and is botanically related to rhubarb. Because its seeds are eaten it is referred to as a pseudocereal.
Buckwheat returns nitrogen to the soil therefore organic farmers often use it as a green manure crop rotating it with cereal grains like wheat.
The starchy endosperm is white and makes up most or all of buckwheat flour. The seed coat is greenish tan, which darkens buckwheat flour. The hull is dark brown or black, and some may be included in buckwheat flour as dark specks. It gives a delicious and distinctive flavour to sweet and savoury baking.
Produced by milling the whole buckwheat grain and sieving off some of the outer husk. Then both the inner kernel (groat) and remaining husk is milled into a flour.
