Bouchard Family Farms Gluten Free Acadian Light Buckwheat Flour, 3 lb Bag
The tiny white flowers that beautify the countryside and are the source of the prized buckwheat honey, help us recall a time when buckwheat was a staple that energized America's pioneer men and women. High in minerals like iron and potassium, buckwheat has more vitamin B than wheat. In addition, health-giving buckwheat compares favorably with meat, eggs, and milk as a source of protein. However, unlike animal protein, buckwheat is low in fat and sodium. At the time when there is growing concern over chemicals in our food, silver-hulled buckwheat has retained its original vigor. It thrives without herbicides and pesticides in the cool hills of the St. John Rivera Valley.
