Is buckwheat made from wheat?

Buckwheat is actually a seed! It doesn't come from wheat, despite its name. It is gluten free, and can be used raw, toasted, or ground into flour. Popular uses are buckwheat pancakes and buckwheat (soba) noodles.

It's not actually, despite the name. It's related to rhubarb and sorrel and is native to central Asia.
