Buckwheat , like cassava, rice, millet, amaranth and teff, is a naturally gluten-free cereal and some of these are also known as "pseudo cereals". Thanks to the total lack of gluten, some of these products are also widely used in the preparation of gluten-free flours, in order to meet the needs of those who are intolerant to this ingredient.
