Australian manufacturer Livwell Emporium has released Buckweaves, a plant alternative snack, which uses buckwheat as an ingredient.
To avoid the need to fry the product, Livwell had created a formula for Buckweaves that delivers a crunchy snack that is baked and flavoured in batches at its manufacturing site in Seaford, Victoria.
To enhance the nutritional offering of the Buckweaves snack, the company also used buckwheat in the ingredients of the innovative new snack. Unlike the name suggests, buckwheat is unrelated to wheat, is gluten free and is part of the rhubarb family.
Buckwheat is also often referred to as a superfood.
