Note: Buckwheat is a grain that has been eaten for hundreds of years in the Far East. China, Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries have long enjoyed noodles made from buckwheat flour. Buckwheat can also be used for a variety of baked products, including pancakes, breads, muffins, crackers, bagels, cookies, and tortillas, among others. Buckwheat is thought of as a cereal, but is actually an herb of the buckwheat family, Polygonaceae.
