Buckwheat is a complex carbohydrate, high in fibre and antioxidants. The beneficial effects of buckwheat are due to its rich supply of minerals and flavonoids. These protect against disease and promote a healthy heart, blood flow, nutrient delivery, growth and maintenance of body tissue.
Buckwheat is a great ingredient for parrots, parakeets, pigeons and pheasants.
Buckwheat is a triangular shaped fruit of the plant Fagopyrum esculentum, which is related to rhubarb! It has a nutty flavour and is very high in all 8 essential amino acids.
