As America’s buckwheat brand, we feel it’s our duty to give you everything you need to know about our favorite lil seed.
But let’s first get one myth out of the way: Buckwheat is a FRUIT SEED, not a grain!
Buckwheat is not a grain!
It’s true. Buckwheat is a seed that comes from the buckwheat flower, and is more closely related to strawberries and rhubarb than actual wheat! That’s why we dropped “wheat” from our brand name Lil Bucks. (The “Lil” is just there because the seeds are cute, and, well, lil’)
