Instant Buckwheat Powder
Buckwheat belongs to the so-called pseudocereals; they contain proteins with a better amino acid score than cereals and a significant proportion of resistant starch and thus have a lower glycemic index.
Pseudocereals are gluten-free and represent potential raw materials for the production of gluten-free bread and bakery products.
Buckwheat is a source of numerous vitamins, phenolic compounds (rutin, quercetin), flavonoids, highly nutritive protein, dietary fibre, and minerals.
The primary antioxidants in buckwheat are quercetin and rutin which are considered to be a remedy for deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
