Black buck wheat is not in the wheat family. It actually belongs to rhubarb and foti (polygoni) family is an ancient crop. The black buck wheat is cultivated at higher elevation (3,000 ft) in northern China.
It provides a complete nutrition we need plus beneficial nutrients and trace mineral. It is helpful in lowering cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and blood sugar, all these modern day health issues for many.
It can be cooked as rice, or with other grains. I prepare it with my morning oatmeal.
Roasted black buck wheat can be brewed as a tea with an enjoyable nutty flavor.
Both grain and tea are available at Holsome.
