About Buckwheat Hull Pillows

Buckwheat pillows have several advantages over synthetic foam and feather pillows. They help reduce nighttime allergies, prevent overheating, provide better support and improve sleep quality over traditional pillows. Buckwheat hulls are hypoallergenic and if kept dry will not provide a suitable habitat for mold or dust mites.

A very small percentage of the population will have an allergic reaction when exposed to buckwheat flour; these people may have problems with buckwheat pillows and should avoid using them. Buckwheat hull pillows are cool in the summer and warm in the winter. They will not cause the overheating common with petroleum based foam pillows. The loose buckwheat hulls in the pillow shift to conform to the users shape and they provide exceptional support to side, stomach and back sleepers.

It is important to check labels and packaging when purchasing buckwheat hull pillows. Several companies market “Sobakawa Pillows” that contain no soba (or buckwheat). These new pillows are filled with tiny microbeads instead of hulls.

Beware of buckwheat hull pillows made with uncleaned and unprocessed hulls; they contain high levels of allergens that may trigger an asthma attack in those who are at risk.

About Buckwheat

Despite the name buckwheat is not a type of wheat at all. It is a flowering plant from the family Polygonaceae and a relative of rhubarb. Buckwheat was domesticated around 6000 BC and was one of the first crops introduced to North America by European settlers. Buckwheat plants are ideal for short growing seasons in areas with low soil fertility. It is also used as a cover crop because it grows quickly and thickly which prevents weed growth.

Buckwheat was an important crop in the U.S. until the demand declined in the 1960's and it is grown commercially for three reasons. Honeybees produce buckwheat honey from the nectar of buckwheat flowers and the health benefits of buckwheat honey are many and well known. However for those seeking buckwheat honey for its health benefits, it must be raw buckwheat honey. Heating buckwheat honey (pasteurization) destroys the all of the pollen, live enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and aromatics. Raw honey is in the same condition as it was in the hive.

Buckwheat seeds are used as a wheat alternative; the seeds do not contain gluten and are often used as a substitute for people with celiac disease or another form of gluten intolerance. The seeds are harvested and eaten whole as ‘groats’ or turned into flour. Japanese soba noodles are made from buckwheat (‘soba’ is the Japanese word for buckwheat).

The final use for buckwheat involves the hulls, or seed casing and the Japanese word for buckwheat hulls is sobakawa (also called sobagara). The hulls are cleaned, usually by roasting, and used as stuffing for pillows and zafu. The use of buckwheat in pillows dates back over 1,000 years to Asia and even earlier in Ancient Egypt.
