What is Buckwheat Flour?
Buckwheat flour is a gluten-free, whole grain flour made from the pseudo-grain buckwheat, a herb related to plants like rhubarb and sorrel. To make the flour, buckwheat seeds are grinded into a powder in a mill and ultra refined. The end product is flavorful, nutritious, and incredibly versatile when used in combination with other starchy flours.

They have vastly different nutritional values with buckwheat pancakes being significantly higher in protein and fiber than regular pancakes and also containing more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are also completely different in taste, texture, and color as they tend to be a darker brown with a distinct nutty flavor and airy texture.
