First let’s talk about what “Buckwheat” is, Buckwheat is neither a grass nor wheat. It is in fact a fruit related to rhubarb. Buckwheat was sometimes called beechwheat, because its seeds look like small beech nuts. Buckwheat seeds are also used in making gluten free flour. From about July through thru October, hives are place in buckwheat fields. During that time the honey collected is Buckwheat honey.
Color: 85 - 120 mm Amber to Dark Amber
Buckwheat honey has deep, dark brown color when it’s collected, when it at its most liquid form color gets so dark it might look as black. Once crystallized, it brightens into a black tea color.
Buckwheat Honey is typically compared with black strap molasses, and it possesses a musty, earthy and robust aroma.
Compared with lighter-colored varieties, buckwheat honey isn't as sweet. The basic composition and nutritional profile of all types of honey are relatively the same, but buckwheat honey has higher concentrations of macroelements, trace elements and anti-oxidant compounds, which is why it has such pungent, strong molasses like earthy flavor.
Crystallization Rate: Medium to Fast
This honey takes its time to start crystallization process, but once it starts it will quickly turn in to uneven thick and large grain form. Due to location this Buckwheat honey comes from it will crystallize much faster in winter than summer.
