HOW TO PREPARE BUCKWHEAT
Pay attention to the expiration date shown on the packaging
Often not usually correct due to the habit of keeping cereals, such as rice or rye, for a long time, but buckwheat is not a cereal and it is a most perishable food. So you have to cater to their expiration date.
Preparation of the grain:
- It is necessary to clean the grain of buckwheat under the faucet with cold water to remove any residual dirt or dust.
- Note: Do not use damp grain. In this case, grains are crowded or have "trickles".

Conservation of buckwheat
Once opened, buckwheat should be stored in an airtight container, preferably glass, and stored in a dark, cool and dry place. The grain can be kept in such good condition for 1 year in refrigerator.
Buckwheat flour should be stored in the same conditions and in a refrigerator, where it will stand in good condition for several months.
Once cooked, if we want to preserve the grain, we must do so in refrigeration. Even in summer (and especially at this time of year), food is usually left at room temperature for cooling. This is when bacteria can develop in the food causing gastroenteritis, as the high ambient temperatures are ideal for the growth of these microorganisms. Therefore, always keep cooked dishes in the refrigerator.
