Buckwheat is known as an environmental powerhouse that helps the planet by reducing greenhouse gasses, decreasing harmful chemicals on the soil, air, and water, and uses little water to grow compared to other plants such as avocados, soy, and oats. Buckwheat grows on poor soil, known to be an organic fertilizer by farmers for naturally transforming poor soil into fertile soil that helps the next crop after buckwheat harvest to grow without the need of fertilizers. For thousands of years, buckwheat is a gluten-free superfood with many functional health benefits including helping improve heart health, manage diabetes, promote weight-loss, and support gut-health. BUCK products are currently marketed and sold across Canada, United States, and Mexico and soon to be in Australia and New Zealand.
