BUCK Buckwheat Porridge

BUCK Porridge, made from whole grain buckwheat and are commonly used as a nutritious breakfast cereal. They are gluten-free and can be prepared by simmering them with water or milk until they reach the desired consistency.  They can also be used in baking recipes, added to granola, or mixed into yogurt for added texture and flavor.  Nutritionally, buckwheat is rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, protein, and various vitamins and minerals. It’s especially known for its high levels of essential amino acids like lysine. Buckwheat is also naturally gluten-free, making it a good option for individuals with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease.  BUCK products are phytic-acid (phytates) free to optimize the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

BUCK Porridge

BUCK Porridge made from whole buckwheat grains, is a nutritious whole grain product that offers several health benefits due to its unique nutritional composition. Here are some of the nutritional benefits:

  1. Rich in Complex Carbohydrates: Buckwheat is a good source of complex carbohydrates, which provide a steady release of energy. This can help in maintaining stable blood sugar levels and sustained energy throughout the day.
  2. High in Dietary Fiber: Rolled buckwheat is high in dietary fiber, which supports healthy digestion and can aid in preventing constipation. Adequate fiber intake is also associated with improved heart health and a reduced risk of certain chronic diseases.
  3. Gluten-Free: Buckwheat is naturally gluten-free, making it an excellent choice for individuals with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. It can be a valuable alternative to wheat and other gluten-containing grains.
  4. Rich in Essential Amino Acids: Buckwheat is notable for its amino acid composition, particularly its high content of essential amino acids like lysine. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and essential amino acids must be obtained through the diet since the body can’t produce them on its own.
  5. Source of Vitamins and Minerals: Rolled buckwheat contains various vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins (such as niacin, riboflavin, and B6), magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus. These nutrients play essential roles in metabolism, bone health, and overall well-being.
  6. Antioxidant Properties: Buckwheat contains various antioxidants, including rutin and quercetin, which can help protect cells from oxidative stress and inflammation. Antioxidants are associated with a reduced risk of chronic diseases.
  7. Heart Health: The fiber, antioxidants, and specific compounds found in buckwheat are believed to contribute to heart health by helping to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, and improve overall cardiovascular function.
  8. Satiety and Weight Management: The combination of complex carbohydrates, fiber, and protein in buckwheat can contribute to feelings of fullness and satiety, which may aid in weight management by reducing overeating.

Single Source of Sustainable and Complete Protein

BUCK products have a single complete protein source: buckwheat — we love making our ingredients simple.

Buckwheat has 9 essential amino acids: tryptophan, threonine, isoleucine, leucine, methionine, phenylalanine, valine, lysine, and histidine, representing a complete protein profile typically obtained from food.  Complete protein is an important part of our daily nutrition and is fundamental for repairing and maintaining a healthy body.

Buckwheat is an unsung hero with delightful benefits for good health and well-being. We are passionate about nourishing families in our communities through thoughtfully and responsibly sourced plant-based ingredients that  naturally contribute to regenerative agriculture.
