Prepare them with your favourite plant-based milk, fruits, nuts, and a pinch of cinnamon, and voilà! a balanced and tasty breakfast is ready. But buckwheat groats are also perfect for being used in savoury recipes.

If you have no idea of what buckwheat groats are, we are going to enlighten you: they simply are coarsely ground buckwheat grains. Do not let its name fool you: buckwheat is not related to wheat, and is not a grass, but a so-called pseudocereal. Pseudocereals are grains or seeds which can be used as cereals, even though they are not, botanically speaking. Contrary to cereals, they do no contain gluten, and have therefore always been a staple in the kitchen of people who suffer from celiac disease. 

The buckwheat groats that you find on our website comes from biodynamic agriculture cultivated and cared for according to Demeter standards. Our buckwheat is grown and processed in Germany!

Varieties and origins

Buckwheat originally comes from Asia; arrived in Europe in the early Middle Ages, buckwheat has a short period of growth and thrives on lean soil, but is sensitive to cold. It has been a staple of Eastern European cuisine since ancient times, and Russia is the first documented country to have cultivated buckwheat. In 2017, 3.8 million tons of buckwheat were harvested worldwide. China is the largest producer of buckwheat, followed closely by Russia.

    Why is the price fluctuating?

    Most annual product crops have an impact on the relationship between supply and demand in the market. In the event of a bad harvest, we must also pay a higher price for raw materials. Due to the strong impact of external factors such as wind, weather, climate and natural events on the harvest, we are refusing long-term cross-harvest contracts with our producers.
