You will either love or hate buckwheat, there is probably nothing in between. Buckwheat with its specific taste is not pleasant for every diner, and as they say, the least tasty is often the best for our health. The same applies to buckwheat as well, it is a super food.

It is a great pity that many people break their stick over buckwheat after tasting it for the first time, while it would be enough to taste it better and everything could be different.

Especially in the winter season, when we need to supply the body with a much higher amount of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, buckwheat consumption is ideal.

Buckwheat is a great food especially for those who are sensitive to gluten. Buckwheat does not contain gluten, and celiacs, who are dependent on a gluten-free diet for life, can enjoy it year-round.

Various products and raw materials are made from buckwheat. You can buy it in the store as chips, crisps or buckwheat porridge. You can use buckwheat flour for sweet and savory baking. Thanks to this, the products will be more digestible and, therefore, more nutrients will enter the circulation.
