UPC Code: 739934839676
Not much is commonly known about the "wheat" that isn't actually wheat. Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) and its cousin Tartarian Buckwheat (Fagopyrum tatarium, or Ku Qiao Mai) are in the rhubarb family (Polygonaceae). They are not true cereal grains and are therefore gluten-free, good news for those who may be gluten-sensitive. Buckwheat is used to make pancakes, pasta, bread, roasted kasha and soba noodles. In addition to its culinary uses, buckwheat can be used as a powerful formula for a variety of health conditions.
Nutritionally, Buckwheat is abundant in minerals and proteins: Vitamins B1 and B2, potassium, magnesium, phosphate, copper, and iron. By weight there is twice as much of the amino acid lysine in buckwheat (5-7%) and proteins (12-15%) as in rice and other common staple grains.
Tartarlan Buckwheat has been cultivated for over 2000 years in China and the Himalayas at heights of up to 4400 meters. According to Traditional Chinese herbalism theory, buckwheat circulates through the Spleen, Stomach, Lung and Large Intestine meridians.
