Buck wheat flakes are a surprising ingredient for a nutritious breakfast. You can use the flakes as a base for muesli for instance, or for a delicious gruel. Both options are even nicer with some fresh or dried fruit. Buck wheat is rich of fibers and proteins, and also a good source of minerals like magnesium and copper. They also contain the vitamins niacin (B3) and riboflavine (B2). You can eat buck wheat as breakfast porridge for example, or use it for all kinds of pastries. In order to make the flakes, the moisture content of the grain is raised by means of steam. The grains are then flattened by flattening machines, where they come out as flat flakes. It is almost impossible to flatten grains without steam, because the extra moisture makes sure that the grains are flattened instead of crumbled.
