Loving Earth Buckinis are made from our raw activated buckwheat and are a delicious combination of our Caramelised Buckinis, healthy nuts, berries and superfoods, such as Maca and Mequite. Ideal for breakfast, sprinkled on smoothies or simply as a superfood trail mix. They are grain-free, gluten-free, crunchy bundles of goodness that don’t go soggy in cold milk. And they’re not wheat, in fact they’re not even a grain - they’re a protein-packed seed.
Why is the buckwheat activated?
Well, most cereals are puffed or toasted under extreme heat or pressure, which destroys their nutrients. Loving Earth prefer to make the most their ingredients, so they activate them. Activation is the same as sprouting – soaking the seeds in filtered water to release the enzyme inhibitors, bringing the seeds to life. Enzyme inhibitors exist to keep the seed dormant as it waits for the right conditions to germinate. This means they also prevent the nutrients in the seed from being released into your body when you eat it. Activating makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients.
Why is activation good for you?
Activation starts the sprouting process, removing the enzyme inhibitors and making the nutrients available to nourish your body. The final step is to dehydrate the buckwheat, nuts and seeds at a low temperature. This preserves the vital nutrients and gives our Buckinis their crispy texture. And why do we do all this? The answer is simple – so that when you wake up to Buckinis, you’ll feel great on the inside and activated to start your day.
