Local Buckwheat

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/8

Buckwheat is one of the traditional export products of Yan’an. Its main producing area is located in several counties of the northern Yan’an [the whole producing area is about 1 million square mu (equaling to 0.0667 hectare), which produce several million ton buckwheat every year].

In the modern society, the value of buckwheat has been fully recognized. It is a healthy food which can prevent the cirrhosis of blood vessel, help to treat cancer, and control diabetes. Thus it is named “the most potential green food in 21st century” by nutritionists. Besides, the buckwheat flower can be used to make high quality honey. And the buckwheat husk can be made into the core of pillow (the pillow is called “the magic pillow” for it helps sleep well).
