Black buckwheat from Daliang Shan – high mountains, untouched nature
Our raw materials are exclusively from the Daliang Shang mountains. The Daliang Shan mountains with peaks of 4,500 meters and higher are located in the south-west of the province Sichuan in China. Our plantations are located at a height of between 2,600 and 3,000 meters and are thus largely protected against plant diseases and insect infestations. The Daliang Shan is not located anywhere close to industrial areas and clean air as well as clear water can be found there. Many sunny days but also sufficient rainfall guarantee ideal conditions for cultivating and harvesting buckwheat of the highest quality.
Tartar buckwheat belongs to the family of Knotweed plants.

In 1987, scientific research in Beijing found the reason why the Yi people from Daliang Shan hardly fell ill with diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer. The reason for this is the consumption of tartar buckwheat which is rich in rutin, selenium, magnesium and other important minerals.

Cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes are the three greatest killers of mankind in the twenty first century.
