Does anyone eat this? I've been eating this on and off, but had no idae that one cup has 600cals and 23g of protein...

Can anyone back this up, because if this is true I'll be eating it everyday, lol.

Look on the container. I almost everything you put in your mouth, at home, comes out of box with values on it. Not to sound like a dick, but half the post in this forum could be answered that way.
It might have that many gs of protein, but it may not be a complete source. How is it prepared? You don't go out and graze do ya? Then I would understand not knowing the values.

I know what you mean, but I get the buckwheat from this polish store, which imports the stuff here; in Poland not everythin ghas a nutrition value.

Wasn't buckwheat one of the Little Rascal's?

My brother used to call me that so when I saw the topic of this thread the hair stood up on the back of my neck.

Erm... that is all.

:nod: A favourite saying of my bother as well.


For a little help since I'm not yet bored of answering posts today:

Buckwheat flour: 1 cup, 333cal - 11.7g protein, 2.5g fat, 72g carbs.

Is it a quality carb source?

Although I am not positive, but it looks to be a good source of carbs. Has a good amount of fiber and is not processed so I don't see any reason for it not to be. Ever tried buckwheat pancakes?

All in all this looks like a good product to me. I just need some diversity in my diet. I can't just eat yogurt, milk, and oatmeal you know.

Peace
