Buckwheat Flour?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I bought some Gluten free waffles and now I'm gassy like I used to be. They have buckwheat flour in them. Does anyone know if that's a close cousin of offenders? It seems like it would be a cousin but distant or close... THAT is the question..

Buckwheat is not related at all. Totally different family of plants. It is neither a cereal nor a grass.

Yea buckwheat is safe for us. Are you new to the diet? If so did you use a toaster that had been used for gluten foods to toast the waffles? That or shared butter with gluten eaters would be enough to 'get' you.

Yes, new to it. I should have known that <palm forehead>. I have a kosher kitchen and I should know that anything that would make something not kosher would make gluten-free not gluten-free. I will change the tin foil in the morning before I make waffles tomorrow. They were really yummy and smelled awesome while toasting, btw.
