KASHA - Gluten Free



Sorrel, Native to Central Asia, Buckwheat was introduced to Europe at the end of the middle ages. The word Buckwheat is said to come from the Anglo-Saxon words boc (beech) and whoet (wheat) because the seed resembled a small beechnut and yet was similar in size to a wheat kernel. When unprocessed, the Buckwheat seed is three-sided and has a thick, hard outer shell that must be removed before eating. This is usually done mechanically and the remaining inner seed is called a Groat. Hulled Buckwheat is cream-colored and the Groats are small and angular shaped. When roasted, this grain is called Kasha and can be used in breakfast cereals, bread, soups, and stuffing. Buckwheat Groats carry a hearty, earthy malted tone, which enhances the flavor of your dish. Buckwheat Groats are an excellent source of easily digestible protein, containing all eight essential amino acids; they are a good source of fiber.

Ingredient Statement:

Roasted Buckwheat Groats.





The nutty, earthy flavor of groats is found in knishes, soba noodles, piroshki, pilafs, cold salads, and as a breakfast food. Buckwheat Groats can be dry-roasted, sauteed, baked, braised, or marinated.
