Mancan is a mid-season buckwheat that was developed at the Agriculture Canada Research Station, Morden, Manitoba in 1973. It has a seed size 26% larger than the standard Tokyo variety. We mill the whole buckwheat with the hull on, and then sift to remove approximately 85% of the crushed hull material. What remains is a lightly speckled flour that retains the flavor and complexity of the hull without any gritty texture. Our Mancan buckwheat is grown by brothers Samuel and Charles Stodden of Trilla, IL.
