Tasty Facts

For the preparation of buckwheat flakes, water or milk is taken at the rate of 1: 2. One part cereal to two parts liquid.

If you add less liquid to the flakes, you get a very dense mass, adding salt, pepper and chicken eggs to which you can cook buckwheat cutlets or meatballs.

In the manufacture of flakes, cereals undergo technical processing, while losing fiber and other nutrients. Therefore, the best solution would be to use whole grain flakes, in the manufacture of which the grain is only flattened without losing the bran shell.

For buckwheat flakes, as a substitute for sugar, dried fruits such as black raisins quiche-mish and dried apricots are perfect. You can add fruits such as pear or banana. Those with a sweet tooth can add jam, condensed milk, honey and grated chocolate to their cereal.

In stores, you can sometimes find flakes from green – not subjected to heat treatment – buckwheat. Such flakes are brewed even faster and are ready for use in 1 minute after heating.

Buckwheat is a real champion among cereals in terms of protein and amino acid content. For comparison, if in buckwheat there are 13 g of proteins per 100 g of the product, then in rice the same figure is only 2.7 g.
