Buckwheat flour is intriguing and delicious. It has an intense and rustic flavor and aroma. Its aroma is reminiscent of hazelnut with an almost earthy hint and a slight bitter aftertaste given by the numerous flavonoids it contains. Buckwheat is part of the ancient flavors rediscovered only recently. Its strong flavor is the main feature that makes it appreciated by most, but if you want to attenuate the taste by making it more delicate, just mix this flour with a more delicate flavor such as rice flour or PASTA NATURA corn flour.
Buckwheat is an ingredient with a high nutritional value. It has less starch than wheat, but it has more protein. Contains all essential amino acids and is rich in mineral salts such as zinc, selenium, magnesium and potassium, B vitamins and antioxidants. The presence of lipids, on the other hand, is negligible. These characteristics make buckwheat flour an excellent ingredient for both gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets. It should be remembered that the absence of gluten improves digestibility for everyone, not just for those suffering from gluten sensitivity.
Buckwheat flour is a tasty ingredient to use for making homemade pasta, polenta and dry preparations such as quiches, crêpes and biscuits. Given its technical characteristics it lends itself less to the preparation of leavened products. Buckwheat in fact has little ability to retain gas and release its starch to the yeasts, which is the process that allows the dough to grow. For combinations, go ahead with vegetables, vegetables, vegetable creams and cheeses. Also for buckwheat, as with all wholemeal ingredients, it is not recommended to combine it with tomato sauces. For those who want to travel around the world with traditional recipes based on buckwheat flour we offer: Russian blinis, Breton galettes, Japanese soba noodles, pizzoccheri and Valtellina sciatt.
