3 Facts About Green Buckwheat:

  1. Green buckwheat is a rich source of proteins and amino acids. 8 of 20 amino acids contained in food proteins are indispensable. These are tryptophan, lysine, methionine, valine, threonine, leucine, isoleucine, and phenylalanine. All the 8 indispensable amino acids are contained in green buckwheat in a quite considerable amount, and the most important thing is that they are balanced and digestible, unlike the products of animal origin. Green buckwheat is also rich in lysine that is entirely absent in other plants.
  2. Green buckwheat is a strong antioxidant, it contains up to 155 mg/100 g of antioxidants (e.g. rise contains only 5 mg/100 g). Our young healthy skin, hair and body depend on the quantity of antioxidants consumed.
  3. Green buckwheat contains no gluten, which means that it can be consumed by those who follow a gluten-free diet and are allergic to gluten.

Chemical composition of a product is characterized by calories, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, dietary fibres and vitamins. For organic products, these parameters significantly depend on natural factors – air temperature and precipitation during vegetational season, dry or rainy season, geographic latitude and longitude of cultivation, botanical grain varieties, and soil type.
It is impossible to foresee all the factors, so these values are average and indicative only.
