    Being Russian, I love me some buckwheat groats, which, in the US are sometimes called kasha. I tried doing the calculation for this in the Fast Tract app and it came out to be about 10 FP for half a cup. Is that about right? That’s considerably lower than most other non-rice grains.

    Hi Jpek. I just added these to the app database for the next update due out in Feb 2018. For 1/2 cup (30 gram serving), the FP is actually 13, relatively close to what you suggested. The reason is the glycemic index is only 45.
