Organic Buckwheat Hulled
This Organic Australian Hulled Buckwheat is a nutritious, naturally wheat-free ingredient that is commonly used as an alternative to rice.
Despite the name, buckwheat is not actually a grain but a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb. Organic Australian buckwheat has a distinctive nutty flavour and can be cooked and served in a similar way to rice.
Australian buckwheat is rich in amino acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is a natural source of protein. This buckwheat is grown and packed on the Daman family farm on the northwest coast of Tasmania.
No GMO. Preservative and additive free.

- Additional Info
Organic hulled buckwheat is extremely versatile and can be cooked and served whole or ground into a flour.
Buckwheat is often used to make crackers, bread and noodles. It is also a great substitute for rice and porridge.
Before cooking, buckwheat must be thoroughly rinsed under running water to remove any dirt or debris. Add one-part buckwheat to two parts water or broth. Bring to the boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes.
The buckwheat plant produces a seed that is 3-D triangular in shape and has a black hull. Hulled buckwheat has had the outer black layer removed, the resulting grain being yellowish in colour.
It is a low food miles crop, which is grown, harvested, hulled and packed, all on the certified organic Daman family farm, on the North-West coast of Tasmania.
No insecticides or pesticides are used during the growing process and no preservatives or additives are used during the processing of the grain.
