  title={Is Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) Still a Valuable Crop Today?: Invited review},
  author={A-L Jacquemart and Val{\'e}rie Cawoy and Jean Marie Kinet and J. F. Ledent and Muriel Quinet},
Cultivation of buckwheat has decreased progressively worldwide over the last 20-30 years because of its low and erratic yield. In this review, we stress out the strengths and weaknesses of this crop. Buckwheat constitutes a multifood-use pseudocereal with nutritional benefits consisting in the absence of gluten in the flour, the richness in water soluble fibres, high quality proteins, unsaturated fatty acids, and appreciable mineral and vitamin content. The anti-oxidative action of buckwheat as…
