So, what is buckwheat flour?

Buckwheat flour is a gluten-free ingredient made from grinding the seeds of the buckwheat plant. It has a distinctive earthy flavor with hints of nuttiness, making it a popular choice for gluten-free baking. Buckwheat flour is a rich source of fiber, protein, and essential minerals like magnesium and manganese. It has a unique texture, and when used in baking, it adds a slightly grainy and dense texture to the final product. Buckwheat flour is commonly used in making pancakes, bread, and noodles. Its versatility and health benefits make it a great alternative to wheat flour.
