why is buckwheat so good for you?

Although named buckwheat, it is not a form of wheat or grain. Buckwheat is a naturally gluten-free seed. These tiny seeds are rich in dietary fiber and protein and multiple antioxidants.

You may think of it as a superfood. Another beautiful thing about buckwheat it is non-allergenic. When this flour is used in baking, it adds a slightly nutty flavour and a hearty texture, and it pairs beautifully with the coconut flour.
