Why use Buckwheat?

Unlike the name, Buckwheat is not related to wheat. It's a seed related to rhubarb and has a delightfully nutty flavour. It's perfect for people with celiac disease because it's gluten-free and contains high amino acids and is low GI. Buckwheat is packed with fiber and is packed with essential minerals like copper, zinc, magnesium and manganese. Because the fiber is soluble, it helps to reduce blood cholestrol levels and promotes bowel health.

  1. Hi, your bread looks amazing but I don't understand why you transfer the fermented dough into the baking dish rather than let it ferment in the bread loaf tin and then put it straight into the oven. I would really love to know. Thanks Louise
