Buckwheat is like a seed that belongs to the family of cereals, commonly called pseudocereals. Talking about pseudocereals, they are seeds but used like cereal grains that cannot grow on grass. Other examples of the pseudocereals are amaranth and quinoa. Don’t get deceived by its name; buckwheat is not wheat. That’s why it is gluten-free. Two types of buckwheat are grown commonly for food. These are Tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tartaricum) and common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum). Even though people considered it a grain, but actually it is a seed.
Buckwheat, Hulled Origin
Northern hemispheres such as Russia, China, Eastern and Central Europe, and Kazakhstan are the biggest producers of buckwheat. Those regions who cultivate these grains are usually the ones who also harvest buckwheat because it is an essential crop for marginal lands. But it is particularly important for the colder regions in Asia that have higher altitude and latitude. The primary purpose for its cultivation is its seed that gives starchy white endosperm. It is used to produce buckwheat flour which can make blini, soba noodles in japan, and pancakes. The seed of the buckwheat can also be used to thicken soups and for breakfast.
To remove the pericarp, the seed is crushed, and it gives us Dehulled grains that are used in a traditional Russian dish called kasha.
