سیاہ گندم، دیلار

Common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) belongs Polygonaceae family  genus Fagopyrum (sometimes merged into genus Polygonum).  Buckwheat is thus not related to true wheat. The name "buckwheat" or "beech wheat" comes from its triangular seeds, which resemble the much larger seeds of the beech nut from the beech tree, and the fact that it is used like wheat.

The flour is noticeably darker than wheat flour, and is known black wheat. Groats, that part of the grain left after the hulls are removed from the seeds, and farina, made from groats are used for breakfast food, porridge. Buckwheat contains rutin, a medicinal chemical, used for vascular disorders; it is naturally devoid of gluten, and can thus be eaten by people who react adversely to gluten.With its congeners tartary buckwheat (F. tartaricum Gaertn) and perennial buckwheat (F. cymosum L.), it is often counted as a cereal, though unlike most cereals the buckwheats are not true grasses.
