More about Doves Farm Wholemeal Buckwheat Flour (not Gluten-Free)

Buckwheat is an ancient seed which was first cultivated in Asia thousands of years ago and is ground and used in a very similar way to traditional wheat. Buckwheat's name is quite confusing as it is nothing at all like our traditional wheat in any way. It is not a grain and it does not contain the same proteins and gluten. Buckwheat is naturally gluten and wheat free with a nutty taste. It is very pleasant when eaten roasted as a seed and makes a great flour when ground. It can be used in a similar way to wheat flour for baking and thickening.

Serving Suggestion

Buckwheat flour can be used in Raw Food recipes as a thickener.

Must have quite a bit of gluten in it... - Tue 27th Oct 2015

I bought this as I was reaching the end of my shopping budget and it was cheaper than the certified gluten free buckwheat flours. I figured being a doves farm and it stating that it is grown with/processed with gluten containing grains, it would only contain traces of gluten. I was sorely wrong. This flour definitely contains a fair amount of gluten as when I made a batch of the little rolls I do for the kids' lunches it became very glutinous in the bowl (my first warning sign) and my daughter suffered with diarrhoea every night after eating them. She has suspected ulcerative colitis so I shouldn't have chanced it but feeding three kids a paleo diet on a shoestring budget gets hard sometimes! Don't we all know it lol. So anyway, if you know gluten is really a big problem for you, spend the extra and buy the certified gluten free flours instead. From a taste perspective, buckwheat has a very particular flavour that can't really be described. Try it in your baked goods by subbing just a small amount of the flours you use (I found it substituted one for one with tapioca flour) to begin with and see how you like it.

excellent for pancakes - Thu 18th Sep 2014

We are not gluten intolerant but I still try to keep our gluten intake to a minimum. I find that my hayfever improves as soon as I avoid any dairy and gluten. Therefore buckwheat grain is perfect for any meal and buckwheat flour is just superb to any gluten containing flour. I use it in falafels and especially pancakes. It binds really well and doesn't need adding any gluten. My two boys take buckwheat pancakes to school at least once a week - savoury or sweet and absolutely love them.

Makes a good alternative to bread when added to water, xanthan, bicarb and cream of tartar. Especially good when toasted.
