Buckwheat Kernels made from Raw Natural Buckwheat after Hulling Process. Buckwheat kernels have a triangular shape and have a light green to tan colour and a fresh nutty flavour. Buckwheat is also a great source for minerals, vitamin B, potassium, phosphorus, dietary fibre and vitamin P, which also contains flavonoid rutin. Rutin reduces cholesterol and keeps the capillaries and arteries strong a flexible. The reason the incredibly high protein content is that buckwheat contains all of the eight essential amino which the body cannot produce. As well as having these amino, buckwheat is a complex carbohydrate which means the body can meet its fuel needs without burning protein. This allows the protein to be used in the most efficient way possible.
