Buckwheat Benefits Kids Health
Despite containing the word ‘wheat’ in its name, buckwheat is not a grain. It’s a fruit seed related to rhubarb. Buckwheat has recently become popular due to its high mineral and antioxidant content. Also, the husk contains resistant starch which means it resists digestion in the small intestine to reach the large intestine relatively intact. Here it serves as an excellent source of food and nutrition to feed the beneficial bacterial living deep within the gut. Abundant amounts of gut bacteria supports optimal brain function and a robust immune system.
