Buckwheat flour is an extremely high quality flour that retains all its nutrients and valuable vitamins. Buckwheat is very high in magnesium (by volume). One cup of it is said to contain 98% of a person's daily magnesium needs. Although the name implies it, buckwheat isn't a type of wheat, not even a grain. It is gluten-free and belongs to the rhubarb family. It is a pseudo grain. Buckwheat is rich in complex carbohydrates and is a very good source of plant protein, the protein being readily available (giving a biological value above 90%). It is also rich in iron, zinc and selenium. Buckwheat flour is very well suited to waffles or pancakes, and can also be used in cakes, biscuits and bread.
