Who we are
We are engaged in the processing of natural raw materials collected in ecologically clean regions of Siberia. The main product of processing is the pine nut, Sea Buck-thorn berries and buckwheat flour, all manufactured and hand collected by the inhabitants of the Siberian villages. By distributing the natural raw materials of from Altai, we can create jobs for the local Siberians, as well as preserve the ecological balance of the ancient region of Altai.
The region of Altai
Altai is nestled right between Siberian Taiga lands, Mongolian semi-deserts and Kazakh’s towering peaks. Its remoteness and secret regal beauty remain preserved because it cannot be damaged by the elements the modern world invites into many lands. It’s as if a shield of protection is rooted in its very soil.
Our buckwheat is harvested from the wild planes of Altai, from where it's milled to flour in the local mills. In our process of creating a product that is world class, .Our number one priority is to sustain the Siberian nature and give back to our people.
Common buckwheat is a pseudo-cereal crop that produces short, wide-spreading plants bearing bright green, heart-shaped leaves and small white flowers. with a pseudo-cereal like buckwheat, it has played an important role in diets around the world, mainly in Asia and Eastern Europe. Buckwheat has been providing essential nutrients, vitamins, energy, and fiber to humanity for approximately 8,000 years. Its first starring role as a cultivated crop appears circa 4000 B.C. in the Altai region of Russia,
Even before assessing the importance of buckwheat groats themselves, buckwheat has proved itself to be a valuable crop in the fields. As a short-season crop that performs well in acidic and under-fertilized soil, buckwheat can perform as a “smother” crop, used to keep weeds at bay, and to keep soil erosion to a minimum while fields “rest” during crop rotation. It performs best when sown in June, and because it blooms for quite a while (even into September), its nectar provides for late-season honey that can be dark amber in color and rich in flavor. Once the flowers have yielded buckwheat groats and it's time to harvest, the plant stalks can be dried further and used as straw for livestock, or the entire plants can be tilled under to help next year’s soil retain more moisture.
Buckwheat also provides a very high level of protein, second highest only to oats. Not only is buckwheat protein well-balanced and rich in lysine, its amino acid score is 100, which is one of the highest amino acid scores among plant sources as well. Before you pin a gold star on buckwheat for its perfect test score, it’s important to note there is some evidence that the protein digestibility in humans can be somewhat low. While this makes it a less than ideal source of protein for growing children or anyone with digestive tract issues, it’s perfectly fine for the grown-ups of the world. Besides, humans are meant to have a varied, omnivorous diet, so it’s good to obtain protein from a variety of sources.
inally, we can’t close the health benefits of buckwheat without mentioning it’s a naturally gluten-free whole grain. With the number of gluten-intolerant people continuing to rise, buckwheat can play an important – and tasty! – role in any gluten-free diet.
