Although its name may suggest the opposite, these raw buckwheat groats do not contain any wheat, and are naturally gluten free. This is a versatile seed that complements well both sweet and savoury plates, as well as makes alternative breakfast bowl options.
Buckwheat is a very convenient crop for agriculture. The fact is that it is so undemanding to soils that it is grown even on depleted waste land; it does not need fertilizers either (by the way, this is why buckwheat does not contain any chemistry and is not subjected to genetic modification).

Phosphorus, iron, a whole complex of vitamins - this is not a complete list of vital substances contained in this unique product. In particular, vitamin P and other flavonoids, which are rich in green buckwheat, are responsible for the strength of the walls of blood vessels, remove cholesterol from the body, strengthen the nervous system and prevent cancer. Plant hormones have pronounced antioxidant properties, that is, they contribute to the prolongation of youth, and also increase the body's resistance to viruses. The omega acids and fats contained in green buckwheat are extremely easily absorbed by the body. Also in this cereal there are as many as 18 amino acids, including essential ones, such as lysine. But there is no gluten in green buckwheat, which is contraindicated in many diseases, including diabetes mellitus.

It is also good for pregnant women, as its rich vitamin and mineral composition helps the expectant mother to replenish the loss of nutrients that go to the development of the fetus.

HOW TO ENJOY

All nutritionists agree that buckwheat is one of the healthiest cereals, and they add that only green buckwheat is healthier than roasted. Especially if you let it germinate. After all, buckwheat seeds were not subjected to any destructive influences for their structure, therefore, they retained the ability to sprout.
Start your day with an overnight buckwheat bowl topped with fresh fruits and nut butter. You can eat green buckwheat in different ways. But it is much better for health to use raw buckwheat, which can be filled with water or kefir in the evening. Overnight, the grains will swell and become soft. In this form, green buckwheat has a delicate taste and retains all the nutrients. Top it up with honey, syrup or fresh fruit.
The simplest, but less healthy dish is porridge boiled in water.
To cook it, rinse and add to a pan. Add twice as much water and let it cook for 15-20 minutes.
