BUCKWHEAT
BUCKWHEAT From $4.50

Wheat free! Buckwheat is proof that names can be misleading. A white triangular seed with a green or tan coloured skin, it isn’t technically a grain but rather the seed of a broadleaf plant related to rhubarb. Unlike the name suggests, buckwheat  contains no wheat making it a naturally gluten free grain, and so it is perfect for those choosing not to incorporate gluten into their diets. Energizing and nutritious, buckwheat is available throughout the year and can be served as an alternative to rice or made into porridge.
