It all started with a life changing Acai bowl...
It’s as millennial as it sounds. Our founder Emily first enjoyed sprouted buckwheat seeds as a grain-free granola replacement at a cafe in Australia. And the rest is history.
From our Founder
My buckwheat love story starts by the beach in Sydney, Australia. A lush cafe served me an açaí bowl topped with sprouted buckwheat seeds instead of a sugary granola, and I immediately became obsessed with the seed’s unique crunch factor, and how amazing I felt after eating them.
It became an obsession
…Seriously, I felt so amazing that I had to learn everything about this superfood—a gluten-free and grain-free fruit seed containing plant-based protein and prebiotic fiber. How is America not already obsessed with it?!
I moved back to America for love (and we are engaged now!). From that point on it became my mission to share the love of buckwheat with other crunch-lovin’ Americans that also want to feel their best.
The Highlight Reel
It’s been a nonstop adventure since launching America’s first sprouted buckwheat brand at a Chicago fitness festival in 2018. Since then, Emily turned a side hustle into a full time business with a team, navigating a pandemic while launching into Whole Foods, and we are now growing with multiple product lines. We have our amazing customers to thank for the support!
Buckwheat is a FRUIT SEED, not a grain, that is more closely related to rhubarb and strawberries than actual wheat!Buckwheat 101
