The microgreens are often referred to as buckwheat lettuce for their fresh, lettuce-like flavour.
Consumption of very large amounts of buckwheat greens as juice has been linked to temporary photosensitization of skin. Until more information is available, we recommend moderate use.

I use buckwheat as a short sprout, rather than as a lettuce. It producecs delightful sprouts in a couple days, which make a delicious addition to chewy oat sprouts (I often sprout them together, sometimes with sunflower seeds). It is also great as a short sprout on a salad. The hulls add texture. They are also good blended with liquid, and added to batters, where they add that specific delicious buckwheat flavor and a pleasing black speckle and some texture to muffins biscuits and pancakes.
I use the Buckwheat as Sprouts and Micro Greens. Easy to work with, and great end product.
Make a pancake mix of 3 heaping tablespoons buckwheat flour , 1 part coconut flour . Blend in 1 egg and just enough high fat, cold , organic milk to make a medium batter . Toss in a scoop of walnuts and a scoop of raisins and 1 teaspoon of baking powder . Thoroughly mix again and on to a very hot grill .
I buy these seeds and grind them into flour for baking bread, pancakes, sour dough, etc. also add quinoa seeds.
Ordered unhulled buckwheat . It arrived in record short time , and , was cleaned to perfection .
I grow buckwheat as microgreens. It was my first time with buckwheat from Mumm's. Wow, these are amazing! Much better than seeds purchased in local store. I was totally amazed with how vigorous these are. Highly recommended!
I was so glad to find a Canadian source for buckwheat sprouting seeds. They arrived quickly by mail and so far have been very easy to grow. Delicious on their own or in a mix or even as a garnish.
Finally we found high quality seeds - and for good price. Free delivery a nice bonus! Already recommended this company and this product to our relatives and friends. Thank you very much.
These are growing well on my hemp mats and they are mild - making a good contrast to the more peppery microgreens.
