GREAT TASTING BUCK
SINGLE-SOURCE COMPLETE PROTEIN.
BUCKWHEAT AS A SINGLE COMPLETE PROTEIN SOURCE -- WE LOVE MAKING OUR INGREDIENTS SIMPLE.
WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT NOURISHING THE FAMILIES IN OUR COMMUNITIES THROUGH THOUGHTFULLY SOURCED AND PREPARED DAIRY ALTERNATIVES. BUCKWHEAT IS AN UNSUNG HERO WITH DELIGHTFUL BENEFITS FOR OUR HEALTH.
AMINO ACIDS &
* Phenylalanine. Your body turns this amino acid into the neurotransmitters tyrosine, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. It plays an integral role in the structure and function of proteins and enzymes and the production of other amino acids (7). * Valine. This is one of three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) on this list. That means it has a chain branching off from one side of its molecular structure. Valine helps stimulate muscle growth and regeneration and is involved in energy production (8). * Threonine. This is a principal part of structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin, which are important components of your skin and connective tissue. It also plays a role in fat metabolism and immune function SOURCE: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/essential-amino-acids#how-many-are-there
COMPLETE PROTEIN IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR DAILY NUTRITION AND IS FUNDAMENTAL FOR REPAIRING AND MAINTAINING A HEALTHY BODY.
THE 9 - ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS (EAA) CAN ONLY OBTAINED FROM FOOD OR SUPPLEMENTS. THESE 9-EAA (EACH HAS A SPECIAL FUNCTION) ARE TRYPTOPHAN, THREONINE, ISOLEUCINE, LEUCINE, METHIONINE, PHENYLALANINE, VALINE, LYSINE, AND HISTIDINE. THERE ARE MANY CREDIBLE SOURCES OF WHAT THESE AMINO ACIDS REPRESENT SUCH AS: HEALTHLINE, CLEVELAND CLINIC, AND MEDICAL NEWS TODAY.
Protein Completeness: Source of High-Quality, Complete Protein. Athletes need to get an adequate amount of protein in their diet because it is used to repair and rebuild muscles and has many other important functions in the body. It is important to eat sources of protein that contain all 9 essential amino acids (our bodies cannot make these), otherwise known as a complete protein. Buckwheat contains all 9 essential amino acids, which makes it a high-quality, complete protein (this type of protein can be hard to come by in the vegan diet). It is rich in limiting amino acids like lysine and arginine, which are in shortest supply in plant-based diets. SOURCE: https://www.foodnerdinc.com/blogs/food-for-thought/buckwheat
BECAUSE OF ITS "WELL-BALANCED" AMINO ACID PROFILE, THE PROTEIN IN BUCKWHEAT IS VERY HIGH QUALITY.
THIS HIGH QUALITY PROTEIN HELPS REPAIR AND MAINTAIN TISSUES IN THE BODY SUCH AS STRENGTHENING AND BUILDING MUSCLES, BRAIN-HEALTH, DIABETES PREVENTION, AND BLOOD CIRCULATION.
RICH IN VITAMINS & MINERALS
BUCKWHEAT IS RICH IN VITAMINS AND MINERALS INCLUDING MANGANESE, ZINC, MAGNESIUM, AND IRON AS WELL AS B-VITAMINS SUCH AS B1, B2, B3, B5, and B6. THE FUNCTION AND IMPORTANCE OF THESE MINERALS FOR EXAMPLE ARE:
MANGANESE - ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTHY METABOLISM, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT, AND ANTIOXIDANT DEFENCES.
COPPER - ESSENTIAL TRACE ELEMENT THAT BENEFITS THE HEART.
MAGNESIUM - ESSENTIAL MINERAL THAT LOWERS THE RISK OF VARIOUS CHRONIC CONDITIONS (E.G. TYPE 2 DIABETES & HEART DISEASE).
ESSENTIAL IN NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE BODY IN REPLICATION OF CELLS, METABOLISM OF FATS, PROTEINS & CARBOHYDRATES AND IS NEEDED FOR PRODUCTION OF RED BLOOD CELLS. WE FORTIFIED BUCK PRODUCTS (EXCEPTION OF GELATO) WITH B12.
BUCKWHEAT IS A PREBIOTIC. PREBIOTICS STIMULATE THE GROWTH OF HEALTHY BACTERIA IN THE GUT.
BUCKWHEAT CONTAINS POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANTS (FLAVONOIDS) INCLUDING RUTIN THAT HAS STRONG ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EFFECTS.
OUR BUCK ORIGINAL
ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS
per 1 cup (250 ml)
BUCKWHEAT, BEING A SEED (AND DESPITE ITS NAME IT’S NOT WHEAT!), CONTAINS 18 AMINO ACIDS OFTEN REFERRED TO AS THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF PROTEIN.
BECAUSE OF ITS WELL-BALANCED AMINO ACID PROFILE, THE PROTEIN IN BUCKWHEAT IS VERY HIGH QUALITY.
GRAMS OF TRANS-FAT
per 1 cup (250 ml)
BUCKWHEAT IS NATURALLY LOW IN FAT, WHICH IS VIRTUALLY ALL UNSATURATED FAT. OUR BUCK IS NUTRITIOUS, DELECTABLE AND SUSTAINABLE THAT EVERYONE CAN ENJOY.
GRAMS OF ADDED SUGAR
OUR BUCK ORIGINAL MILK IS A CREAMY, DELICIOUS PLANT BASED DAIRY ALTERNATIVE BEVERAGE WITH NO SUGAR ADDED. THE NATURALLY OCCURRING SUGAR CONTENT IN BUCKWHEAT IS NEGLIGIBLE, MAKING IT A GOOD LOW-GI ALTERNATIVE.
EVERY BUCK BUCKWHEAT MYLK IS FORTIFIED WITH VITAMIN B12 THAT HELP KEEP NERVES AND BLOOD CELLS HEALTHY.
