Loving Earth Buckinis Activated Buckwheat
Part of the sorrel, knotweed and rhubarb family, buckwheat is not related to wheat at all.
It looks grainy for sure. Do you know where it first originated. Well it has been an absolute staple diet in China and Japan. History books record remains found in China and Japan around 4000 BC. This is also the time that this was found in Europe as well. Some historians go even further back recalling a time of agrarian lifestyle and cultivation as far back as 6000BC.
Now the fact that is most pleasing to many I am sure is that buckwheat does not contain gluten. So this is perfect for those who are gluten intolerant. It is also high in protein and it also does contain amino acids and Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. We know that our body depends on these elements and we derive them solely through our food.
We can activate the buckwheat making it easier to digest and for the elements to be absorbed into our bodies. The best method to follow is to soak it first, then wash and rinse it, then dehydrate it at lower temperature ideally at 40 degrees Celsius. This will assist body to digest and absorb the nutrients quickly and easily.

Important to note – there is no flavouring in this product it is simply activated buckwheat.
Apart from what we have mentioned before Buckwheat is a rich source of protein, rutin and manganese and also minerals like Zinc, Iron, Copper, Manganese and B Vitamins, and is also low in fat. There is a little fat but important to note that the fat is primarily monounsaturated; hence this is good for the heart. Think of Olive oil!
The Magnesium also contributes to the improvement of blood circulation and decreases blood pressure.
Buckwheat has a lot of heart-healthy soluble fibre which helps reduce cholesterol, and also contains resistant starch, which boosts colon health and controls blood sugar levels.
The flavonoids in buckwheat, Quercitin and Rutin, have healing and antioxidant properties.
