What is it:
Despite its name, buckwheat is not actually wheat, in fact, it’s not even a grain - it’s the seed of a fruit. It isn’t related to wheat at all, it comes from the sorrel, knotweed and rhubarb family and it’s gluten free!
One of the distinguishing features of buckwheat is that it does not contain any gluten thus making it a great alternative for people with an intolerance to it. It has a high protein content, has all essential amino acids and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. This is particularly important since the body cannot produce essential amino acids on its own and depends entirely on food sources to get them.
To activate buckwheat, we soak it, wash and rinse it, then dehydrate it at low temperatures (under 40 degrees celcius). This allows for easier digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Plain Buckinis have no flavouring and are simply activated buckwheat.
Our Buckinis boxes are printed with vegetable based inks on 100% post consumer recycled fiber. These boxes are recyclable.
