Buckwheat flour


I love all of the flours that King Arthur provides for the home baker. I wish that they would carry buckwheat flour!!! Because they do not, does anyone have an idea where I could purchase this? It provides such a nutty flavor and texture that my family really loves. Thanks......

We do get requests for Buckwheat flour from time to time - I will send a recommendation to my merchandise team to look into it. I know I would love to see it myself!

In the meanwhile, I know that Bob's Red Mill has several different great buckwheat products - flour, mixes, etc.

Sorry we can't serve all of your flour needs, at least at the moment... We used to carry buckwheat, but had to drop it due to very low customer demand. Unfortunately, with the minimum we had to buy, it was going bad before we could sell it. We need to grow and get bigger, I guess!

No idea of the quality of their flour. I do buy their grain. They have a flat rate shipping fee, regardless of the size of the order, which should be kept in mind when comparing them to other suppliers.

You can often find it in the natural section of the supermarket - I've found several different brands on occasion - Arrowhead Mills, Hodgson's Mills, maybe Bob's Red Mill and I saw a brand I had not seen before the other day, but unfortunately can't remember the name.

Swirth orders from them all the time, I believe. (Has she been around lately?)

I found buckwheat flour in the bulk food section of Whole Foods.

They also have it in the bulk bins at Winco, if you have that store where you live.

What does buckwheat taste like?

oh-my-gosh, Paddy, you've never had buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup??! (Throw in some blueberries and call it Heaven)

By all means give it a try. You'll either like it or you won't. I love 'em, DH doesn't care for them so much.

If you've ever tasted teff, it's reminiscent.

By the way, buckwheat is not a grain, it's technically a fruit of a plant that is not related to wheat at all (and it's gluten-free). It's the same thing that kasha (buckwheat groats) is, in flour form.
