buckwheat-is-a-healthy-whole-grainBuckwheat is of course high in fiber like most grains, but what separates it from the rest is that it contains rutin. Rutin is a flavonoid and antioxidant that has shown to strengthen blood vessels in the body and improve circulation. Despite having “wheat” in the title, buckwheat is gluten free. It contains zinc, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin B6, riboflavin, iron and antioxidant phenols. Buckwheat is perfect for pancakes, muffins, cupcakes, and other baked goods. It can also be used in some of your favorite stir-fry dishes.
