History of Buckwheat
Buckwheat is an ancient crop. Archeologists and historians believe that it was first cultivated in China in the early years of our millennium and become soon very popular in East Asia. In the 14th century, buckwheat traveled with the Mongols to the European pat of Russia from where it moved to Central and West Europe. In the 17th century it reached Britain. The Dutch were among those who took particular interest in buckwheat and eventually brought it to the Hudson River Valley region. Despite the fact that nowadays buckwheat is grown in many parts of the world, and it has proven to be a miracle plant, its qualities remain largely unknown to the public.
Thanks to scientists who continue to discover more and more valuable features of buckwheat, the attention to this traditional healthy food is constantly growing in many countries. For example, in Italy, the consumption of buckwheat is rapidly increasing – nearly doubling every 3-4 years. There is no doubt that this trend will also be developing in the United States.
