Even though buckwheat is not a true cereal, it is sometimes called a -pseudocereal-.
Buckwheat seeds are dehulled, and the remaining seed material, called a groat, is ground into flour.
The flour is often mixed with flour from other cereal grains, to make breads, breakfast cereals or other multi-grain products.
In Russia, where buckwheat is native, it is used in a variety of food products, including roasting the whole groats to make -kasha-.
Buckwheat is high in lysine, which wheat and corn are low in. The protein content of dehulled buckwheat is about 12%, with only 2% fat.
