Bob's Red Mill Organic Buckwheat Groats are neither related to wheat nor are they a grain at all! Buckwheat is actually a plant related to rhubarb and its groats are actually a gluten free seed. This fun "grain" is shaped like a pyramid and is a complete protein, containing all 9 of the essential amino acids. It can be steamed, toasted (check out instructions on back of the bag!), roasted, ground into flour, or boiled. Try Buckwheat Groats in any recipe that calls for whole grains: pilafs, salads, casseroles, soups, granolas, stews, or as a cereal on its own. Buckwheat groats are also the key ingredient in traditional Eastern European dishes like Kasha Varnishkes and Potato Knishes. Cooks in only 10 minutes! Like all of our gluten free-labeled products, this product is processed in a dedicated gluten free facility and is R5-ELISA tested to confirm its gluten free status. Certified Organic by QAI.
About the Brand
Bob Moore's secret to life may just be "work hard and keep it simple." Living this philosophy, Bob literally puts his nose to the grindstone every day. Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods is an Oregon-based company that utilizes simple, old-world technology to mill hundreds of all-natural whole grain products.
Bob's Red Mill is dedicated to the manufacturing of natural foods in the natural way. In their own words: "With all the sophisticated knowledge of recent times, no machinery has yet been developed that grinds grains into flour quite as well as our flint-hard quartz millstones quarried in France and used by discriminating millers since early Roman times."
"Our well-dressed (sharpened) sets of millstones turn the highest quality wheat into a finer, better baking bread flour than all the hammer mills, steel roller mills, steel buhr mills, or pulverizers ever built! These slow turning millstones grind the bran, endosperm, and germ (containing its nutritious wheat germ oil) into flour in a cool natural way, creating a more assimilable food."
Bob's Red Mill stone grinds all common and most uncommon grains into flours and meals on its over 100-year-old mills. They mix them into an astounding array of unique cereals, pancake and waffle mixes, machine and hand-made bread mixes, quick bread mixes, gluten-free mixes, and specialty grain products.
