Is Buckwheat Better For You?

It has long been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But if that meal includes chocolate-covered cereal or a plate of fatty sausage, it's probably not as good a meal as we'd like it to be! This may lead us to turn to healthier options, such as fruit and yogurt, in pursuit of a nutrient-rich start to the day.


But even that can lead to a rumbling tummy by midday, leaving us reaching for a snack to ward off the empty feeling! So what's the best breakfast that will fill us up without counting the calorie cost, especially if it's breakfast for the whole family?


The answer lies in buckwheat or oatmeal ......


The healthiest - and filling - breakfast?

One way to start your morning is to drink some form of porridge, which releases energy throughout the day and makes you feel fuller. This may seem like an easy solution, but not if you are gluten intolerant and have difficulty eating many of the grains associated with breakfast. Almost all types of cereals and porridges contain grains such as wheat and barley, which cause bloating and discomfort rather than warmth and satisfaction. This is where alternatives such as oats and buckwheat are valued as a healthy and delicious way to start the day.

What are oats?

Oatmeal is essentially just oats cooked in water, making it a good base for a healthy breakfast. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but if you do suffer from gluten intolerance or celiac disease, then you should be careful as some oats can cross-contaminate with items that contain gluten during the manufacturing process. Therefore, it is always important to check the label and see if the oats you are buying are completely gluten-free.


If you are making oatmeal to be healthier, then keep in mind that shortcuts don't always work, as many flavored oatmeals often have added sugar. You should also keep in mind that the ingredients you add to your oatmeal at home, such as sweeteners, syrups, or milk, can also have a significant impact on the overall calorie count.

Because of its low glycemic index and the inclusion of all eight essential amino acids, buckwheat is now one of the healthier gluten-free grains. It contains more protein than rice, wheat, millet, or corn, as well as phytonutrients and chiral inositol.


Buckwheat also has a low-fat content and more vitamins and minerals, especially zinc, copper, and manganese, than other grains. Many of these grains do contain fiber, but it is largely insoluble, while the fiber in buckwheat is soluble and therefore more easily absorbed by the body.

There are nearly 100 million patients with hyperglycemia in the world. According to scientific statistics, bitter buckwheat is a multigrain crop that can effectively reduce the occurrence of diabetes, so it should be more commonly seen on people's dining tables. It is a good use method to process bitter buckwheat into bitter buckwheat flake which is easy to eat and tempered.     

Buckwheat's versatility

Buckwheat is popular because it grows quickly and requires little to no pesticides, but it is also very versatile and can be used for many different purposes. Roasted buckwheat or kasha is a popular choice because it has a more earthy, nutty flavor. It can be ground into flour to make noodles or pancakes, or soaked and stewed to make cereal or porridge. Buckwheat can also be ground into thin flakes and used as a direct substitute for oats. The fact that it is so versatile makes it more widely available than oats, and it can often be substituted more easily.


Buckwheat contains more fiber, potassium, vitamins, and less saturated fat than oats

When deciding which grain you should choose, it's important to remember that buckwheat contains more fiber, potassium, and vitamins B2 and B3 than oats and less saturated fat.

This healthy source of carbohydrates may help lower bad cholesterol, and it's filling despite being naturally gluten-free.


Buckwheat is easy to cook and can be a direct substitute for many traditional grains, making it suitable for the whole family. Making any major changes to your diet requires careful consideration and should be done steadily and carefully.


If you have any special dietary requirements then you should discuss any changes with your doctor or dietitian to ensure that they can be made safely and that you can reap the full benefits of any changes.
