Does buckwheat have gluten?

    No, buckwheat is actually a gluton free product. Although gluton is commonly found in grains, breads, and cereals, buckwheat found its way through the cracks. So for those of you are allergic, have diabetes, or need to find a great source of carbohydrates and amino acids, buckwheat bread is the way to go. However, make sure that the flour used is 100% buckwheat. Most buckwheat flour actually contains another source, such as wheat so check your ingredients before taking a bite.

    Buckwheat is gluten free.  It is high in fiber, contains eight essential emino acids, easy to digest proteins, Vitamin B, and allows for better glucose levels than other carbohydrates.  The main thing to watch with buckwheat is any potential contaminations.

    Buckwheat is gluten-free.  Many support groups throughout the country have come to this agreement only just recently.  Where the disagreement lies is in regards to the possibility of contamination.  Experts have argued however, that buckwheat is no more likely than any other grain to become contaminated (technically buckwheat is considered a fruit, but because of its grain-like properties, it is often referred to as such).  Those that are allergic to gluten are still advised to double-check labels before consuming the product.

    Gluten is a protein. It’s a part of wheat, barley and rye, so stay away from beer if you’re attempting a gluten free diet 🙁

    No, buckwheat does not have gluten. It along with arrowroot, coconut flour, rice flour, and many others can be a substitute for “normal” flour recipes. It’s difficult to live a Gluten free lifestyle. A lot of products such as oats can be contaminated by wheat.

    Fact: Most people who suffer from Celiac disease (gluten free diets) can also be lactose intolerant.
