Buckwheat Flour and the Glycemic Index

What does buckwheat flour taste like? 

Buckwheat flour adds a subtle nutty and earthy flavour to baked goods. The flavour of buckwheat can be quite strong on its own so it’s typically paired with other flours or other tasty ingredients with strong flavours. Its earthy flavour compliments sweet baked goods well by providing a contrasting depth of flavour. Buckwheat pairs well with flavours like lemon, dark chocolate and spices like cinnamon.

How should I store buckwheat flour?

You can store buckwheat flour in a dark cupboard for several months. If you use it only occasionally, consider storing it in the fridge or freezer to prolong its shelf life.
