So, what is tartary buckwheat?

Tartary buckwheat, also known as bitter buckwheat, is a grain-like seed widely used in traditional Chinese medicine and culinary practices. Unlike regular buckwheat, it has a distinctive bitter taste and darker color due to the presence of anthocyanins, antioxidants that offer numerous health benefits. Tartary buckwheat is naturally gluten-free, low in calories, and rich in fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. It can be consumed as a whole grain, milled into flour for baking, or brewed into tea. Tartary buckwheat is a versatile and nutritious ingredient that adds flavor and nutritional value to various dishes.
