Buying Tips

Find prepackaged buckwheat in most natural foods or grocery stores; buy in bulk for maximum savings.


Buckwheat groats (the hulled kernels) are pale tan and green, and have a milder flavor. Kasha, or roasted buckwheat groats, has a deep brown color and a toastier, nuttier flavor. Buckwheat is available in grits and flour, and is used in pancakes, crackers, breads, and other baked goods.
