Organic Buckwheat Flour.
Buckwheat Flour, or ‘groats’, is a gluten free wholegrain suitable for those with gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease. Most commonly used in Australia for buckwheat pancakes, is is also great for gluten free bread and baking.
Buckwheat is a summer broad leaf summer crop, that requires a cool wet growing season to produce high quality grain. Buckwheat is not related to wheat, and is therefore gluten free. These kernels are freshly dehulled and milled into a flour, ensuring a mild sweet flavour, high nutrition and optimum baking qualities.
Buckwheat has a distinctive nutty flavour, is a low GI, high in magnesium, balanced in amino acids and naturally gluten free. It is a true ancient grain that can be cooked in a similar way to most other flours.

Meet The Supplier
Pure Food Essentials was born out of a passion for turmeric. After growing this superfood spice organically on his Sunshine Coast hinterland property, founder Peter was inspired to take a trip to India, the natural home of so many spices, to learn more about turmeric production. After three days on tour meeting growers, local farm owners and processors they discovered just how deep the relationships were. Producers helped local farmers gain organic certification, provided education (both agricultural and for the children of growers) and medical support, helped meet transport requirements and offered financial aid during hard times. A true mutual loyalty and trust was formed and today forms the foundation of Pure Food Essentials.
Today PFE still buys their spices from these same ethical producers. Certified Organic by NASAA (National Association of Sustainable Agriculture Australia) their products are tracked all the way from their source by strict organic certification practices. Once delivered to the warehouse on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, products undergo a final quality check, ensuring a high quality, fresh product.
