There have been questions about buckwheat....containing WHEAT
The first thing you should know about buckwheat is that it’s gluten free.
Despite its unfortunate (for celiacs) name buckwheat is a fruit. It’s a dicot in the polygonaceae family, which also includes rhubarb and sorrel.
Buckwheat has a variety of healthful properties. It’s an excellent plant source of easily digestive protein and contains all eight essential amino acids, so it’s close to being a "complete" protein. Buckwheat is also high in fiber (a big bonus for celiacs), B vitamins and, according to a USDA study, keeps glucose levels in check better than other carbohydrates -- which is good news for celiacs who also have diabetes. It’s also said to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol.
