Besides its name, Buckwheat Flour is Gluten Free!
Because it is neither a grain nor related to wheat, buckwheat is gluten-free and safe for those with celiac disease and gluten sensitivities.
Commonly used, buckwheat flour is a high fiber, high protein alternative to white flour. It is also higher in many essential vitamins and minerals than white flour. You can use buckwheat flour in place of white or whole-wheat flour in many recipes, including those for muffins, cookies and breads.
