Discover the benefits of buckwheat
Buckwheat has a unique nutritional profile that contains a significant amount of antioxidants, including rutin, a compound shown to be protective against inflammation, cardiovascular disease and cancer. 2 Buckwheat is one of the few plant-based foods that contains all nine essential amino acids. One cup of cooked buckwheat groats has six grams of high-quality protein, a form that’s easily digested and absorbed.
A quarter cup of buckwheat contains eight percent of your recommended daily intake of iron. Pair it with vitamin C–rich foods, like citrus fruit, to help boost iron absorption.
The bran of buckwheat groats has more soluble fibre than wheat or oat bran, which lowers blood cholesterol levels and helps keep you feeling full.
