According to Jennifer Whitfield, buckwheat is a prime ingredient in gluten- and grain-free diets because, despite appearances, it isn’t actually a grain. It is a seed that comes from the rhubarb family. Buckwheat is packed with nutrients such as plant proteins and amino acids. It is an excellent source of iron and magnesium, it is high in rutin and also contains tryptophan, which makes the feelgood hormone serotonin. It’s also a great ingredient for those with gluten and other food allergies. Her $20 buckwheat cookbook is available at www.jenniferwinfield.com/basically-buckwheat.
