Buckwheat is in the group called pseudograins – foods that cook like grains but are technically seeds or fruits.

Quinoa is another type of pseudograin.

Buckwheat has lots of fiber, minerals, B vitamins and antioxidants along with a compound called D-chiro-inositol, which seems to have some effect in helping blood sugar tolerance.

I got that info from a great book called Superfoods: The Healthiest Foods On The Planet, by Tonia Reinhard.

Not that I’m too concerned about getting each specific little thing like this, but it’s always nice to have yet another reason to enjoy my fast-cooking buckwheat.
