Whole brown toasted buckwheat (whole Kasha) is a nutritional powerhouse and is not only great for your health, but also a nice complement to your cereal. Oprah calls buckwheat a Super Food! It is high in potassium and phosphorous and contains 50% more vitamin B than wheat. Buckwheat (whole Kasha) has the highest source of biological protein in the plant kingdom. It has over 90% of the protein value of milk solids and 80% of whole egg solids.

This buckwheat (whole Kasha) is hulled, natural and dark tan/brown in color. Interestingly, despite its name, buckwheat is not a member of the wheat family and is botanically speaking a fruit!

this is my first time trying buckwheat. I just cooked & tried it for breakfast with a little maple syrup. It has a nutty taste and is very filling. I'll be looking for other recipes.
