Looking for a supercharged protein hit? Our Buckinis are made of activated buckwheat, which is actually a seed! Available in four distinct varieties, Buckinis have an alkalising effect on your body unlike most other cereals, which create an acidic environment.
Try it for breakfast with your favourite fruits, superfood powders and nut milk...you'll never go back to nutritionally empty cereals again!
Buckwheat does not contain any gluten thus making it a great alternative for those who have a gluten intolerance. It has a high protein content, has all essential amino acids and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. This is particularly important since the body cannot produce essential amino acids on its own and depends entirely on food sources to get them.
A rich source of minerals like Zinc, Iron, Copper, Manganese and B Vitamins, buckwheat is also low in fat. The little fat that it does contain is mostly monounsaturated which is the kind that makes olive oil good for the heart. The Magnesium also helps improve blood circulation and decreases blood pressure. Buckwheat has a lot of heart-healthy soluble fibre which helps reduce cholesterol, and also contains resistant starch, which boosts colon health and controls blood sugar levels. The flavonoids in buckwheat, Quercitin and Rutin, have healing and antioxidant properties.
Our Buckinis is sustainably sourced from organic growers in China.
