Buckwheat belongs to a group of foods commonly called pseudocereals. These are seeds that are consumed as cereal grains but don’t grow on grasses, such as quinoa and amaranth.
Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat and is thus gluten-free.
Buckwheat has become popular as a health food due to its high mineral and antioxidant content. Its benefits may include improved blood sugar control. Buckwheat is richer in minerals than many other pseudocereals and cereals. It’s high in manganese, copper, and magnesium but low in most vitamins.
