Buckwheat is not a type of wheat and while it is called an “ancient grain” it is actually related to rhubarb. Buckwheat is a great grain alternative and can be used in many of the same ways. It is high in protein and fiber, has a low glycemic index, and provides a powerhouse of minerals including iron, copper, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium. Hulled, raw buckwheat is easy to sprout.
Please note: Packaged in a facility that also packs wheat seed.
Sprouting is as easy as 1—2—3! Simply soak your seeds in water overnight (about 8 to 12 hours), place them in your sprouting container, then rinse at least twice daily until sprouts have reached the length you desire. See inside of packet for more information about growing sprouts.
Sprouts can be grown in a variety of containers. The easiest method is to use the Botanical Interests Seed Sprouter™. It provides optimal air circulation and drainage, and has removable tray dividers that allow you to grow up to four different batches of sprouts at once.
Sprout Seed Safety: To ensure you are purchasing the safest possible sprouting seeds, a sample from each lot we receive is sent to an independent laboratory where it must test negative for foodborne pathogens including Escherichia coli (E. coli), Salmonella, Listeria, and Staphococcus aureus (Staph). For maximum safety it is recommended that you disinfect the outside of your seeds and your sprouting container prior to sprouting.

"They grow fast, taste great. I was very happy with the quality of these seeds. There were almost no seeds that failed to sprout.” - S. Murray
