Can Buckwheat trigger a flare up?

I have had very soft stool the last days and need to know if Buckwheat may be the reason. I included Buckwheat in my baked bread and I know the labels on some of the Buckwheat packs tells that it can contain traces of Gluten.

Are there anybody else here with the same experience?

I try to stay away from gluten and someone told me it didn't have wheat in it.

I donít think buckwheat contains gluten, but it could have trace amounts of gluten from cross contamination during processing. The same thing can happen to oats, so I always look for certified gluten free oatmeal.

Last time I had a buckwheat and almond meal muffin - it set off a huge flare. All a bit too rough on the old guts. Maybe try coconut flour instead.
