    Salt Trace
  • Buckwheat, Fagopyrum esculentum, is a member of the rhubarb family. Known in France as sarrasin, it's also called black wheat on account of its dark outer husk. Unlike wheat, buckwheat is not a member of the grass family and is therefore, like quinoa, a pseudocereal rather than true cereal.
