Buckwheat, or Fagopyrum tataricum, is a hearty plant bearing three sided grain-like seeds. At maturity, it stands at between 2 and 4 feet tall.
It flowers prolifically for two to three weeks and eventually produces hundreds of small brown seeds with high nutritional value. Each seed, or groat, is protected by a hard outer shell or hull much like a sunflower seed.
What does buckwheat plant look like?
Seeds contain compounds that make them hard to digest. These compounds can also stop seeds from releasing nutrients until they sprout.

We can trick seeds into thinking they are about to sprout, releasing more. This process is called activating.
Our activated seeds have been steamed and then roasted with dry heat making them very delicious and soft when cooked.

All you need to do is just boil our roasted buckwheat for about 14 minutes!
