Buckwheat – the stealth health alternative

In a time-pressed world, simple changes we can make to eat healthier catch our attention. Using buckwheat is one of those changes. Here’s why:

  • Buckwheat in diets has been linked to lowered risk of developing high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
  • Buckwheat is packed with flavonoids that protect against disease by extending the action of vitamin C and acting as antioxidants.
  • Buckwheat contains almost 86 milligrams of magnesium in a one-cup serving. Magnesium relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow and nutrient delivery while lowering blood pressure.
  • The nutrients in buckwheat may contribute to blood sugar control, a boon for diabetics. And, whole buckwheat also scored highly on ability to satisfy hunger.

If that wasn’t enough, buckwheat is also a great alternative for the gluten sensitive, since it isn’t a cereal grain at all. All of these benefits help make buckwheat the stealth health alternative.

Buckwheat Pancake Mix

If there is something that makes a weekend better than pancakes, we’re not sure what it is. Maybe a puppy or finding money in our jacket pocket. Still, neither of those things is particularly good with syrup. Our Buckwheat Pancake Mix is. Guess what. Only four ingredients in the mix, and you can pronounce all of them.

Buckwheat Flour

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, our Haldeman’s Light Buckwheat Flour is just the ticket. Open the bag, follow the recipe. Pancake heaven. Or, use it as a gluten-free thickener for gravies or sauces. Pretty tasty in bread recipes too. Go ahead and improve your family’s eating habits. We can keep a secret.
